Caliper paint?
 
I need to paint the stock calipers red. The calipers are new and rust free. Suggestions for a quality heat resistant caliper paint that will last? Thanks!

I believe VHT makes a good caliper paint, I used it on my last car. The key to having it last long and look good is the prep work though. Make sure you clean off everything very well and put a couple coats of primer on it. That will make a HUGE difference. Then after a few coats of the red caliper paint I'd recommend a few coats of clear coat just to protect it that much more.

That sentence there in bold is the money.

Well said.
