White calipers

I'm thinking about painting my calipers white to go with my theme, anyone know if this is a bad idea or will it get dirty easily? Also if anyone can recommend some good quality caliper paint / clearcoat (do calipers need a clearcoating?)

Also, if someone has any pics, that would be cool too

i dunno about white calipers, they might get dirty real quick. Also, you don't need special caliper paint, any high temp paint will do. Duplicolor has an "Engine Enamel" brand that has like 20 different color of high temp engine paint.

IMO, a white car looks good with light blue calipers, like the color of CG2's calipers.

calipers are very important to do it right the first time, it'll compliment the ride very well if done right and with patience. CG2's ride can't get no cleaner, BALLIN ass spoon calipers are already painted from the factory.

Js do it right the first time, as for the white color eh I uno about that, maybe a dark red or a light blue shade will suffice. Research and do hw, learn some tips before you do it

I've seen a black CL, older version with spray painted RED calipers and they were fading, and dripping onto his rotors/hub. Looked awful!
