    Good High temp Paint/epoxy for Callipers?

    Ok so I was just wondering if anyone knew of a really good high temp paint/epoxy for my 2012 brake callipers? Over the winter I swapped my oem wheels for just some steelies with winter tires on them, well to my surprise when I just put my summers back on today the salt here in NY destroyed the callipers making them look totally disgusting now... so I want to paint them but I dont want it to flake off like most peoples do when they just use rattle cans. Thanks guys

    They have specific paints/kits for painting calipers. It's sold at just about every auto parts store.

    I would pull the calipers off, disassemble, get everything powder coated, reassemble, install.
