ok, I painted my Calipers!, they looked great when I finished, then when they dried, they looked like crap.

I also bought some Metal Specks Paint, for my engine cover, that came out great!, The caliper paint is way to dark and it just looks like the calipers are always dirty even though there not, so can I just paint the Metal Specks paint on over the Caliper Paint?, if the paint for the engine cover can withstand heat from the engine than cant it with stand heat from the Calipers?

whatever paint you use on the calipers make sure it can take the heat 900F+. you cannot go wrong with paint designated for brakes or engine block. the wrong paint would probably bake right off.

what caliper paint did you use? was it designed for calipers with a high heat intensity? i've honestly never seen a bad looking paint as they are all made to look sexy (at least the ones i've seen).

Yeah, thats why I was surprised when they actually looked bad. I used Caliper, Rotor, and Brake Drum Paint (All in One).
