Sounds like silver is a better way to go for you then.
I'm going to paint mine soon still deciding on the color. I'd like to check out the silver on calipers.
Anyone have picts?
BTW..VHT Brake caliper paint can be bought at most autoparts place...its 7 bucks..couple bucks more than hi heat engine paint. The g2 paint listed above is some hi-quality stuff. If you got the cash but that stuff.
Diablo, I used *gasp* Ford Blue on my calipers and they came out almost the exact color as my spec blue car, if thats the blue you are going for try that. And I just used the cap of the spray can to hold the paint
*EDIT* Also, for the silver there was a post a while back about how to POLISH your calipers with a dremel, makes it silver.
If you paint your calipers with aluminum the color will look metallic silver and NOT aluminum. This is what I did to get them to look like the aluminum of stock GTS wheels. I got Dupli-color high heat aluminum and painted the calipers by spraying the paint in a small plastic bowl and then brushing on the paint. After that they will have that metallic silver (sort of cheezy) look. Then use Dupli-color high heat clear and SPRAY the caliper...it will sort of "frost" it and give it the finish like the stock GTS wheels. I painted my calpers and engine plastics at the same time and I was disappointed until I sprayed on the clear...it made a HUGE difference. Highly recommended...hope this helps
