I have been trying to find some caliper paint(high heat) close to GGP. No luck so far. :( . I was wondering if I could just paint the calipers with Lexus GGP or something close to it, and then spray a high heat clear coat over it to keep the paint from peeling, any thoughts? :)

Hmm I would not suggest using the regular paint on that IMO even with a clear coat for high temps

I think it is a lost cause

understandable

Just have to remember, high temp paint was not meant for calipers originally


But if you get GGP and want to try it do it, worse case it just comes off....

True....I found a charcoal grey like color that Dupli makes, its not high heat. I'm gonna give it a try and then spray like 3 coats of the high heat clear coat over it...like you said, worse case it just comes off!!!!!!

Thanks Imprimis :)

I am not a fan of G2 that is just me, I like foliatec (limited colors)

But VHT they have spray high temp paint (for engines) in gold...

Good luck with the caliper paint project, hope it works out with the GGP color or close to it. ;) Keep us posted.
