Im wanting to paint my cobra calipers to match the exterior but i will have to use my base paint. Will that take any heat that the calipers produce?

Most caliper paints state that they are high heat. Probably a reason for that.

yes you need high temp paint.
I'd also put some high temp clear on it afterwords.

I would rather have that than a color that did not match the red on my cobra ;)

Use duplicolor ceramic paint. Did that on mine and it looks good. Just do enough layers so it doesn't look like it was "brushed" on...
