Did you check your local Autozone, Meijer, etc.? I bet they make it, I've seen engine parts colored white before.

Hi-temp paint is the wrong thing to use for calipers. Brake cleaner will disolve it in seconds.

Autozone here has white caliper paint. I saw it a couple weeks ago.

Thats would be a huge pain in the *** to keep clean it would look good for a few days then have to be cleaned and painted again, what if yoou painted them white then clear coated them maybe a little bit easier take care of, it would stand out white though, very nice

Gumball, whatever color you paint them, they'll require cleaning. Unless you do like the Rolling Stones and Paint it Black.

I disagree. With caliper paint, it cleans very easily. Especially if you use enough coats to gloss it over. I've had it for over a year, and the red shows nicely. I just repainted them, but only because it was convenient at the time (2 weeks ago).

ZZZZZZING I think white calipers would look classy though. I'm in the minority.
