Hi Guys

After shining up the Marauder I noticed how pitiful the brake calipers (rear shown) looked through the wheels so was wondering what colour if any you all think I should paint them?

Hi Dereck

Red is good, it just seems to "work". I need to do the ones on my GMGT now.

I voted black. Silver would have been my second choice.

I like red, IMO it would look killer offsetting the black paint

black... a Marauder is supposed to be black.

Black or red.... red leans toward ricer types though.. I think either would look good, I would just prefer black.

Hi Dereck,

As I said before, since I don't see polished or chromed I'd say BLACK!

& a bunch of names all my ex wives call me that I can't repeat here! :wave:

P.S. white sidewalls would look good too...

Cast Blast, the only way to go, you have a no nonsense car it should have no nonsense painted brakes. Cast Blast gives them that brand new look without the brand new price.:2up:

Hi Guys

I am running this same poll on three different forums and here are the results so far;

Number of views = 629
Number of votes = 96 (Why the **** can't people vote if they have gone to the effort to view a poll?)

Black = 36 votes
Silver = 10 votes
Gold = 3 votes
Red = 38 votes
Green = 3 votes
Au naturel = 6 votes

Marauder guys have cast the most votes and are voting red while Lincoln and Grand Marquis guys are voting for black.

I have had suggestions of blue and purple but I can't remember actually seeing them as a choice on the poll http://www.lincolnsonline.com/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif

so the real choice is do you want it to stand out or not. If so... red. If not... black.

I wouldn't go with red. Just because everyone else has red. I may end up changing mine soon.

Black or silver. Red is overplayed.

Hi Guys

I found a can of heat resistant aluminium paint lurking in a cupboard at the shop so in the end went with silver, I think they look fab!
