    Default Which Blue Caliper Paint?

    Can anyone recommend a quality blue caliper paint as per the vxr blue calipers?

    I have used halfords red before and seemed satisfactory, although seemed to chip easy.

    go for hammerite - tried and tested and lasts well -you can always apply a coat of lacquer - but to be honest you wont need it
