calipers

Dear all,


i just changed a new rims.
i found the original caliper is so visible because of my rims design.
mine is 200K only. i'm not prefer upgrade a anything on performance. so i'm thinking any idea to make that old dirty calipers not so "visible".
any calipers covers? or i should paint it by myself. honestly, i won't hope it can be beautiful, i just hope it is invisible.


plz suggest.


thank you very much.

Pick any colour you like of course, your disc inner rims may need doing too if they are more visible
