couple changes im doing to my car. couldn't take looking at those ugly stock rusty rotors anymore! so desided to get the ones I ordered re zinc coated this week since they F'ed up my order! they only gave me zinc coated rears. got no replys from them trying to get the right ones so I didn't feel like wasting my time anymore. ended up just moving on and getting them zinc coated myself. also adding some ARP studs to the rears cause I plan on lowering it a little more and maybe a wider tire like 335 but not sure yet. got the fenders rolled Friday big thanks to 04sleeper so its ready to be lowered! other then that im probly gonna clean the area up and paint some stuff. need to get my spacers I made off the water jet powder coated too since there getting pretty ugly. shown in the pic lol.

need some help though guys on the calipers! what color should I paint them?? really wanted to go white but not sure on how dirty they will get. let me know what yall think.

pic time :head3:

what he said, red would probably look the best as it would stand out, black calipers hide well.

white will get dirty in a week, and will look like shit, dont do it, unless you wanna look like you bought the car from trader's village :P lol

That isn't true, I have white calipers and they clean up just fine. The key is keeping it clean. For a daily driver I wouldn't recommend it.
