Anyone ever paint the brake caliper assy?

Has anyone ever painted their brake caliper assembly (like the SRT)?

If so - any hints. Type of paint. Spray or brush? Is the paint high temp? Anyone know the specific color used on the SRT?

Or is this a no/no and over time it will look like "crap"? Thanks!

I have a corvette and a lot of guys on the corvette forum paint their calipers. They use spray engine paint. Pep Boys sells the paint that many use with success.

Look in the Interior/Exterior/Visual section of this forum. There's a few threads there about break caliber paint.

I have an altitude, and painted the calipers and rotor hubs black. rustoleum high heat spray, just put some newspaper or rags over the rotor surface and use short bursts of paint. I did them soon after I got the jeep, and again about 10,000 mi. I will probably touch them up before the end of the year at about 17,000 mi.
