Default Caliper color

So I have a black on black z28 convertible, and I'm looking at picking up a set of c5 z06 rims that the owner had powder coated bronze. The previous owner of my car painted the calipers hugger orange, which i think would look terrible with bronze rims.

Any opinions on a new color for the calipers?

VHT gold engine paint. There's 2 cans at your local auto parts store, one is more copper the other is more gold. Both would be good options but I have the more gold one on my black WS6 and it looks killer. The paint is satin so if you want to clear it afterwards for some shine, that's on you.

IMO, do not pick another third color. Find a similar bronze for the calipers & rotors.
