    Whatever colour you wish. I painted mine black. If you paint the working area be most careful about bedding it in. And be sure to clean out
    around the caliper pistons.

    Eastwood Argent Silver wheel paint. Wonderful stuff and good match for stock color.

    I'd paint it Satan black
    This is a racing colour that I always use
    It's a bit like satin black but much darker

    All the silver parts on the Titanic were painted with silver wheel paint for durability. Looks exactly like the semi-gloss silver the factory used

    I did mine with hammer paint. It looks so much better. It gives it texture.
