what colours can you get?
If you look on ebay for Savage caliper paint, there are usually quite a few colour options available, it lasts a long time and gives a great finish if the caliper's are cleaned up before applying the paint? used it on most of my car but not the cheapest to buy?

Also used Hammerite smooth on them in the past including my Skyline and there's plenty of colours available in the hammerite range, again lasts quite well :bigthumb:

If you get stuck finding paint mate, use the hammerite smooth finish, quite a few places do it for around £6 for a small tin, I gave mine 2 coats and still have a bit left for touch ups :bigthumb:

Nice looking motor you have there too mate :cool:

I was gonna suggest red but it's been done so many times. I think Gold or Blue is the new red... But me being me and slightly old fashioned Red with black or white is mine :)
