Blacked out with Green Calipers

I had my calipers custom painted. Here's the result.

Tinted headlights and tails, colour matched side markers, LUX LED's, matte black grills, Stealth 3M on the rockers and mirrors (matte finish) 22's, (295/335), HR Springs, Velos tuned and Velos catted DP's. I need to adjust the rear height now that the front springs have settled a bit.

Other than modding the stock muffler, I think I'm done for now.

I think you mean "OE" - Original equipment. OEM is Original equipment manufacturer.....

I too have always been a sucker for the black/lime green color combo.

The brake calipers look great. I would be interested in seeing some more pics from the side like others have mentioned.
