    I painted mine 2 year ago when I had the car painted. I had some Duplicolor caliper paint kit laying around so I used the caliper cleaner and tape included to do the job. I ended up leaving the calipers on the car and masking off the wheel well. Then I removed the bracket and painted that separate. For paint I used some Duplicolor Hi-Temp wheel paint that matched my color perfectly, with flake and all. The paint was tricky to spray because there was so much flake that it looked like you were spraying only flake. I had to use about 5-6 coats to get even coverage on the calipers. After that I used some high temp black paint and brushed it on the caliper where its labeled COBRA. I was really happy with how it turned out and how the paint has lasted over the last 2 years.
