You have to take the wheels off to add the covers anyway. Just paint the calipers. You don't even have to remove them to do it. That won't look fake and you have several millions of color choices.

I would paint for sure over caliper covers. Too nice of a car to put artificial dohickeys on!
I realized I said too nice to put dohickeys on but I have the dohickeys under my turn signals (headbonk). Just think the paint would look way better.

Had mine powder coated and they DO NOT need to be split, but my car has the standard GT brakes.

Finish on powder is MUCH nicer than any of those off the shelf diy kits and the finished product looks professional.

Red calipers on a blue car looks awesome. Nice job.

Nice ride, that is sharp! I love that color combo! What manufacturer are those fenders? Im debating doing them but some look like they have alignment issues but yours look great.

They are just paint peel and stick.. I got them from American Muscle. They fit perfect from the start. I had them professionally painted. Also I have noticed that they blend in better on darker color mustangs.
