I've bought a new frame, matt black and my sram red brakes are aluminium colored.
So i wonder if anyone has experience with painting them black themself.
Tips are very welcome .

I would see if you can anodize them instead, that would probably be better than painting them.

Mine are still as good as new, so spending 200 euro on new ones should be waste of money.

You're going to have a tough time getting any paint to stick to the surface of an anodized aluminum part. Your best bet would probably be to take it to a shop that will anodize it in another color, or start fresh and get some new brakes. Once you factor in the sale of the old brakes, you won't be into the new ones for that much.

Buy a nice used set and then sell yours, you should come out above even.

Anodising is definitely the way forward. Try these guys http://www.customcolour.co.uk
I've seen their work and it's superb.
