I was debating this hammerite

or this

Went for the second as I messaged the first and they said it was not heat resistant like the second one is, he said it would probably be okay but I'd rather have the one that says it

The Hammerstein one would have been alright because tht is what halfords website have in there calliper and drum paint section I went to halfords and bought there halfords brand calliper paint which cost a tenner but the hammerite blue wasn't the shade of blue I wanted.
I then decided to paint them whilst hungover from a weekend in Manchester to think tht I didn't use a lot of paint so a tenner was a bargain then I stood up and kicked the paint over :( now my driveway is blue ha
