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

http://www.duplicolor.com/products/caliper.html but, after 6 months is starts to fade

there is also G2, 980 degrees F, 11 standard colors http://www.g2usa.com/Merchant2/merch...roduct_Code=G2

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.
