    I painted mine black a few months ago and got silver emblems from 8th Day Creations. Stuck the emblems on and then clear coated. They've stood up well thus far.

    Lolly, I bought these before I went with the G2 gold. They were advertised on eBay as caliper paint from a GM dealership in (I believe) Rochester, NY. Interested?

    ZR1 Blue on a silver car with hyperblack (or similar) wheels would be my choice if mine were Silver. Silver and blue compliment each other very well.

    ZR1 blue metallic was the color I wanted, but ended up getting flat royal blue from the powdercoater...could have been worse I guess...
