why show off to everybody that you have drum brakes?? :)
lmao

If your willing to splash out you can get paint that relects different colours depending on the level of light that hits it. But then it hidden in your alloy so IMO pointless
Unless you mean paint the caliper one colour and the guard another? Then its more a case of your skill and presision

well, at the end of the day, you wouldnt go round saying "hey, check out my 200mm DRUM BRAKES" would you. so keep them conspicuous.

but not sure.

I prefer my drums to be painted. Mines only a 1.2 anyways. It's not like I'm trying to make it look like it goes faster. Just trying to make it look better for the way I prefer.

i think you should do the calipers lime green behind black alloys and the drums black like everyone else has said just looks smarter imo
