    I have used DupliColors caliper paint on several vehicles and have had nothing but excellent results. You should be able to get it at WalMart or AutoZone.

    Also have used PlastiKotes caliper paint with excellent results as well.

    i've done hi-temp engine spray paint and the Dupli-color ceramic caliper paint, both come out great. spray is easier than brush on.

    I've tried both the two part epoxy brush on type and the 900 degree spray on type. In all honestly I'm not sure I would do the two part type again (not that there is anything wrong with it, it does just what it claims). The spray is just too easy and it seems to hold up as well. I just used Plastic-Kote's red on a truck about 2 weeks ago. It still takes a little time to dry and is best left to cure over night.

    i have the duplicolor on mine but it`s a whole lot easier to spray this one on it then, for example the MOMO caliper spray i tried
    i would go for the duplicolor and it`s cheaper!
