I just painted one of my front calipers w/ Plastikote yellow paint. My question is, do I really need to paint w/ high temp. paint?
I've painted underhood items before w/ normal spraycan paint, and no prblems ever occured. I spoke w/ someone from Stillen and they told me that I should have used high temp. paint on the caliper. So, my project is on hold as of now. He also mentioned that eventually, the paint would flake off the caliper, due to heat.
How true is this? Does anyone have any type of experience w/ this? Please help me out guys. Thank you, Mike D.
;)

The "glue" of a paint that holds it together and on your surface can only stand so much heat. High temp paints have a different formulation that can stand much more heat than normal paints. Your calipers will get VERY hot under had braking. You would be surprised how hot they get. More than enough to break down Krylon or whatever you used.
