http://www.duplicolor.com/products/enginePaint/ check out the hunter green might be kinda close DE1644 - Racing Green (Hunter) its the same stuff basically. But more colors. I used the DE1607 - Chevrolet Orange-Red and it matched really well.

its basically the same stuff as caliper paint. But i just cleaned them and scuffed them, cleaned again, then shot the paint. So far no issues at all.

There is a guy named Mike is all I know that does powder coating on brake calipers and everyone seems to be happy with his work. Do a search on the forum to see if you can find him. He has painted a lot of calipers. I believe he is in Atlanta, GA.

I am personally not fond of white and they will be dirty all the time. I had the same dilema. If the car was any other color, I would say go for a contrasting color, but not with SGM.

I ended up with Silver and make it pop with glossy clear coat and maybe add red/black - Camaro/Brembo lettering.
