I went looking in vain for the write-up that I had posted to the SHO lists years ago, and numerous folks have used it with success.Originally posted by kodak_jack@Jun 9 2004, 02:12 PM
The calipers on my 03 look pretty bad looking out through the aluminum wheels. Can I paint them with a regular paint like Rust-O-Leum or do I need a high temperature paint like HTH? Do I need to do any particular prep work to get the paint to stick well?

Hey Ron, I just got back from home depot to pick up the stuff for this project. When I went to the paint section and asked where the colored oil-based polyurethane was, the guy looked at me weird and said he never heard of it. He told me where the clear polyurethane was, but that didn't help me. Then he told me to get some Rust-Oleum Protective Enamel in gloss black. It's oil-based and it says it stops rust, do you think it will work? It was like $3.50 for an 8 oz can. And the smallest can of lacquer thinner I could find was 32 oz for about $4
I got the paint brushes for $.59 each and the wire brush for $1.50 at a harbor freight store.
