Brake calipers

Any advice on getting some red brake calipers without spending a ton of money. I'm happy with the stock brakes performance, but really want the red calipers. I thought about powder coating them. Any advice?

Thanks

My advice - don't do it. The stock calipers look like crap and you would only be highlighting the ugliness of them.

I would buy some G2 Caliper paint. It's a brush on paint.

How big of a bank are we talking about...local community bank, or Bank of America?
