    i am looking for suggestions, I would like to paint the calipers on my hellcat to match the body of the car, Plum Crazy Purple. Can it be done and generally how expensive is it?

    You're a brave man... I would cringe at painting those beautiful Red Brembo's. IMHO purple calipers would be too much! If you paint them post up some pic's... I may be wrong in my opinion.

    They can be painted, They need to be painted with paint that can withstand the temperature. Cost is relativity cheap compared to painting other things and who does it. VHT Paint for example is dirt cheap, but i'm unassure on the cost and colors offered.

    It would be much better to have them powder coated.

    +1 on the powder coating.... but MY GOD! I love PCP. I have had several cars, and still have a couple PCP cars and that would be TOO MUCH! Don't cover up those beautiful red brembo's!

    Wow guys, my wife was saying the same thing. I thought it would look cool as the same as the body color. But I see what everyone is saying. I probably will leave them

    I do not think the PCP would look bad on the calipers, but I do think they would blend in with the black rims and get lost, so to speak. I'd leave them red, but that is just me. You do what you like! :)

    Thanks guys for all of your opinions. I was thinking that it would look cool because the red just stands out and is a bit out of place. I have always had red cars with red calipers. I never had a sports car in any other color than red with red calipers. Except for the GTS which has black calipers
