Question Caliper Paint

I want to paint my brake calipers. I am between red and black. The only thing is I want them to look like they came painted. I was looking at the duplicolor caliper paint system but something just tells me to stay with spray paints. Is there a nice spray paint that will hold up on the brake caliper?

Re: Caliper Paint

the caliper spray paint is gloss black, while the can that you brush on is flat black. i dont think calipers look good painted tho, even black. yours arent rusted right? the gloss is a bit too shiny for me, i did my drums but wish i did the flat.

Re: Caliper Paint

Thanks for the feedback but I am also curious if like engine enamel spray paint will work. I want to go either black or red.
