I'm painting the calipers on my red 03 in about a month and I'm looking for some good paint. I know G2 has a caliper paint system that they make to exactly match your paint, but its $100 and I find that price a little absurd for such a small amount of paint.

and i'm not interested in power coating, before a bunch of people post for me to do that! haha.

If anyone knows of a kit that will be really close to factory torch red, post a link and I would appreciate it!
thanks

You need to make sure whatever paint you use is good for high heat applications. Calipers see some high heat during normal driving, and using just normal spray paint will not work too well IMO.

We recently put together a Ceramic high temp caliper paint kit together. We have a nice red that a couple of the guys here have used on their Corvettes and it is def. a nice touch!
