Just a personal preference I am not a fan of colored calipers. I would go black.

73 Grande H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

Black is safest and requires less cleaning.

If it is a set with powder coated red calipers, they would look nice on your car as well.

On my part, its more the branding often printed in white letters on these that I would try to avoid.

I don't put Summit, Holley etc.. stickers in my engine compartment either.

73 modified Grande 351C. (Finally back on the road woohoo!) 

71 429CJ. ( In progress )

I went with a steel grey high temp engine paint for a more natural look. I painted in 2010 and the paint has held up very well.
