VHT high temperature paint?

Has anyone used VHT high temperature paint on their calipers? If so how has it held up? I looked on line and there is several yellows so which yellow best matches the camaro? Pictures anyone?

The brush on applications work and last longer than the spray on, autozone should carry the paint not sure on all the available colors they have

You can PM sleez and ask him what he used. He spent a lot of time researching the best paints etc.

I on the other hand sent mine to mike the powder coater as I wanted a top tier finish that would hold up over time. Plus I didn't want to screw anything up.

I was thinking about doing that. How do you like yours?

I'll post pics when they arrive. Should be about a week.

I like what Mike has done already though. He noted the calipers had some issues which required some minor rebuilding. He could have just powder coated them and sent them back without telling me. Instead he noted the issues and is helping me rebuild them as needed. He is a real professional. I highly recommend him.

I painted mine black using the caliper spray paint and it has held up surprisingly well considering my car is a DD and I live in the midwest. I'd recommend it as a cheap solution, but paint / powdercoating is the best way to get high quality results.

I got great results with Duplicolor Spray Ceramic caliper paint - much more than Duplicolor brush on which I tried first. The coat is uniform and after 6 months still looks perfect: (used flash - it's perfect deep red)
