From past experience painting calipers on several cars you do not need to use the special caliper paint that is sold in kits.

I've used spray paint and brush on paint.

The calipers don't get hot enough to worry about high temp paint.

This time I used rustoleum bought in an 8 oz. can from my local hardware store, much better color selection.

I bought cheap artists brushes at Walmart, small and medium size.

I pre cleaned with mineral spirit but these brake pads don't throw off a lot of brake dust, unlike German cars, so there wasn't much to clean.

I used masking tape and aluminum foil to cover stuff. The aluminum foil conforms to any shape and fits in crevices easily.

For the most part I carefully painted freehand.

The whole project cost less than $10.

On previous cars I have removed the calipers but I didn't want to go to the effort this time around.
