    That’s exactly what I want to do. Blue too except I have stock rims.

    What type of paint did you use? High heat I’m sure. Actual caliper paint?

    Somebody was using a 2 part epoxy caliper paint on theirs, I could see that lasting a while. However, I really like the "styling" the covers give without trying to look like a poser.

    See the Dorman on ebay for $50ish, far cry better than 2bills. The red would look nice on my rebel, might consider when changing my brakes eventually

    There's a reason Dorman is usually the cheap parts alternative.

    There's nothing cheap about the Dorman caliper covers, I had the MGP one's on my Challenger and the Dorman ones are the same material thickness, quality, and installation method as the MGP ones. Dorman one's are just more realistically priced then the outrageous price tag the MGP put's on theirs.
