Easy question what would go well?

Car is a cosmic grey laguna on 17" alloys

Theyre bare metal at the moment, dunno weather to just go silver, or go for a bit of contrast, anyone painted theirs with a similar body colour?

Question .... is Plasticote very high temp paint ? as I would have thought it would burn off or at best peel and crack because of the temp that modern brakes run at?

Just a thought :eek: .... Oh and colour .... Yellow!

No Plasticote can be used at quite high temps. Tho I am not that keen on painted calipers.

To be honest neither am I unless they are poking through the 5 spoke wheels on my Lamborghini and say BREMBO :d

Stick up a picture of the car Andy.

I've got black calipers - car is silver with silver alloys, looks good not in your face.

many many years ago i used it on my mondeo,calipers and rocker cover.never cracked,burned or peeled.although i used the paint and not the spray.i would imagine the proper caliper paint is just the same stuff with a different label and a more expensive price tag

I know this is an old thread, however if anyone else needs information, Plasti kote is resistant to up to 150 degrees centigrade.I used halfords very high temp spray in red. Temp resistant to 500 degress. looks alrite and does the job six months on
