I used the dupli-color brush on paint (not spray can) when I painted my WS6 calipers. This was back in 05 when I bought it. NOW I have only put 10k miles on it since, but have used a wheel acid to clean the wheels on several occasions and even used a heated pressure washer on them several times. I noticed this past weekend that the left rear caliper had a spot on the corner where the read has come off. These calipers are aluminum and not cast/steel. NOT sure is this makes a difference or not. I cleaned them very good with brake/carb cleaner and that wheel acid. They looked better than new when I was done. I used no primer on them either.

Good luck on the paint work. I am thinking about doing mine just to do small details.
