dude. use the dupli-color caliper paint kit. comes with everything you need. tape, brush, a ton of high temp caliper paint. i didnt even take my calipers off. i put a couple coats of it on all 4 of my calipers and have like 90 percent of the paint left. its only like 14.99 at advance. works awesome.

$20 for a can of caliper paint seems a bit much.

You should be able to get away with a generic paint for somewhat cheaper.

You just need to prep well.
