Glossy Black Calipers

At the Chicago Auto Show there was a car (forgot) but it had Glossy Black calipers, like it had a clear coat over the calipers, looked very sexy and that would be an option for me instead of doing just the red ones.

Anyone ever tried to get a glossy finish to their calipers? How long did they last? And is it possible to get a clear sprayed over a powder coat?

There's a bunch of aftermarket companies that make caliper paint and you can get them powdercoated too

This job i would not be satisfied doing this myself, I would still want to retain the "Chevrolet" and "Brembo" Logos on the brakes while having them have a glossy shine.

I think this will have to be a professional doing this.

There is a clear brush on paint called GlistenPC. Works really well and is very hard when dry. It is made by POR-15.
