Default Red Caliper Covers VS Redline Paint

I am looking to buy a set of Caliper covers, and I want to do red. I am not sure if the Redline paint will match the factory red from MGP. Has anyone seen or installed red covers on a redline. I don't really want to get into repainting them or custom ordering for that kind of money. Thanks

I purchased the cheapest ones possible in satin then scuffed, painted, decaled, and cleared them using caliper high heat ceramic paint myself and saved a boat load of cash.

They are about $200 seems like a ton of money for what you get.
They are $279.00 painted in your D's color

Mine should be in any time...didn't bother with the color match I figured the red will look good enough. Plus when you paint them you will have to do it again....I know because I ordered a set for my Magnum because they need repainted. Over time the heat of the brakes will break down even the heat resistant paint. It will crack and then flake off. And Clifford R/T your ride is looking sweet! Don't see many other red R/T's out there.

I think I paid 179.00 at Carid.com plus 8 dollars for the decals to be made and then two cans of caliper paint.
