Is heatpaint the same as caliper paint? 11 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 314
Just wondering if anyone here painted calipers with heat paint and does it resist brake fluid/ brake dust?

I am not going neon, just black, but Halfords have weird colours in brake paint - Blue, Red, or Green

as far as I know you don't need heat proof paint or anything like that for brake calipers. A good quality oil based (e.g. Hammerite) paint would suffice as the brakes don't get that hot .... not like an exhaust

I done my previous cars with Hammerite Red Gloss, Painted it on with a brush as it goes on much thicker than a spray can & lasts!

agree with hammerite as mentioned above. I have done my Glanza calipers with hammerite and its been on for about 4 years now. I took the calipers off and wire brushed and sanded them. After they were clean I threw a few coats of hammerite on them and they are perfect.
