if you're thinking of high temp, then I haven't been able to find any myself... but would also be interested.


Cheers

I've seen people paint rocker covers in enamel, and 2pac, and have all looked good, resisting heat too.... might be a thought?



Cheers

for brake calipers normal enamel will not work! calipers get s**t hotter than an engine

motors run no more that ( 100deg ) on very hot day!!!!

calipers and brakes will be more that double that!

u need heat proof paint! for em

wouldnt the heat soak in from behind as well tho? Is the enameled side would be fine (ish i guess), but wont the heat sink in from the blueprint side as well?

jst a random thought....

Just thought I'd add you might try one of the Auto Paint Supply places around town, they're probably your best bet for heat resistant paints short of the VHT range???

I used engine enamel on my calipers and have stood up to the challenge. And just because your temp gauge reads under 100 degrees does not mean the exterior of the engine is the same temp. Ive seen engine blocks as hot as 180 degrees C after a run on the dyno (even hotter around exhaust manifolds and turbos as well IMO).
