    Default Gis a good brake caliper paint

    Walked into halfords yestersay and saw their own brand caliper paint. I wasn't sure about it so I left it and thought I would ask on here what people use. I also saw their engine high temerature metal enamel paint designed to withstand temperatures of 600c This would do the job aswell wouldn't it? I want to paint my calipers either grey or black and preferably a matt finnish.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I think Hammerite smooth is ideal for calipers, not sure if it comes in Matt finish though.

    Edit: Snap. lol.

    Funnily enough I was messing about with pics in the dark last night, and you couldn't tell my car was there on some of them. I have to press the keyfob to find it sometimes.
