POR-15 for brake calipers?

Has anyone used a POR-15 product to paint their brake calipers? If so what results have you had and what product did you use. I have read that their older products were not very tolerant of UV from the sun and that the color would fade and yellow?

I would like to paint my calipers with POR-15 Silver or a dark grey color and paint the BAER in Red. I'd get them powdercoated, but money is tight and I promised my wife I wouldn't spend any money on mods... oh well

Now being a Navy Guy you should have known you werent going to be able to keep that promise. Now your wife is gonna hold that over your head.....LOL


If it didnt hold up well to UV then it probably isnt gonna be any better today.
