Someone has painted the calipers on a dino a gold colour...and i mean gold as in 18k gold! (maybe 9k...but still gold)

So, here's a photo of a dino caliper that's brand new and has been sitting in a box on a shelf for years.

If someone asked you what colour it is, would you say gold?

That is certainly gold!  :thumbsup:

That caliper looks to have a gold 'tinge' in it. So I would call it gold. Others would call it silver etc...

That gold colour is TOTALLY different to the caliper, of course. But there are different shades of gold. ;)

and it WAS more gold than it is now, when it was made.

Heres a brand new caliper from superformance.

Their parts are considered original worldwide, in the eyes of almost all judges.

FWIW I mentioned this debate to RB today.  He said Alfa bought their calipers from the same supplier as Ferrari at the time (ATE or whatever they were called), and he said they look silver from a distant, with a light gold tinge only evident when you look closely.
