Paint for calipers
Hello all. I know paint for calipers needs to be high heat paint. My question is ....would engine paint work just as good. Colour choices arent that plentyfull for calipers and i have found engine paint thats close to what i want.So will engine paint work?

I don't see why not. Long as you do the necessary prep work first, it should work just fine.

I used engine block paint on mine, and I even got high heat clear.

Duplicolor engine block paint is 1200 F degree paint but, after 6 months is starts to fade

there is also G2, 980 degrees F, 11 standard colors

the best product is of course powder coating, find out when your local shop will be doing your particular color, but, your truck will be on blocks for at least 4 hours

I contacted Dupli-color cause hard to find yellow "caliper" paint, but easy to find yellow engine paint.
They said it would work just fine.

As long as it's a ceramic high heat paint, then it will work.

Now, just finding time to do it. haha

Should look great, can't wait to see it done! I went with sunburst orange caliper covers, and am anxious to get home and get them on :smileup:

You can use high temp engine paint. Overall the most important thing is to be sure that you prep the surfaces correctly.
