whatever paint you use, surface prep is the key to a good looking and long lasting paint job . . . need to get all of the oils or whatever else is on there, off . . . I painted some remanufactured calipers about a year ago, I tried to get the oil coating off of them but apparently didn't do a good enough job and half the paint flaked off

Clean them with brake cleaner spray. I always use engine enamel to paint my calipers. It can withstand lots of heat, and never had any flake off. You also have a lot more color choices.
