I am thinking of painting my brake calipers red. Have anyone tried it? Will it last. I am talking about red heat resistant spray not plasti dip spray.

This looks okay 251749046265 like I have said on another post I have got a spare set of calipers that I intend to refurbish then paint yellow and you get the added bonus of being able to take your time

I think brushing is better as you can work it into the nooks and crannies better

So there is a paint suitable (heat resistant) for calipers? I think is better with paint than spray because when you do spray you must protect the pistons so spray paint  doesn't go there. How do i ask for paint at the shop?should I clear any rust first?

eBay for the paint, also you'll need a can or two of brake cleaner, a wire brush and possibly a scotch pad all available from eBay. Some companies sell the whole kits complete. To see what's involved type in " painting brake calipers" on you tube and hundreds of videos will come up.
