you can buy caliper paint from any car parts store or ive even seen some at wal-mart and stuff..its not really expensive, i bought a can and painted all 4 calipers for about 8 bucks..just kinda time consuming either way you do it..i just sprayed mine into a cup and brushed it on

as for the interior accents, i just picked up a can of primacolor paint for the exterior of the car..bought that for 5 bucks and painted all of my accents a flint mica color..took about 2 coats each

I went ahead and checked online for the G2 paint. Its been a few months now...and they look great. I was going to get the duplicolor, but after seeing my friends calipers chip...i decided to go with the G2...no complaints with that one

I also used Dupli-Color Caliper paint. I did not take my wheel off, but I have Motegi MR7's rims.

This subject is a really good laugh. Instead of getting a big brake kit, let's paint the calipers. Looks great, makes everyone take a second look to see if the calipers are OEM or those enviable big brakes. Great.

Here's the laugh. The only reason you'd ever need big brakes is because you're overheating the OEM brakes. If you are truly overheating the OEM brakes, any paint you put on them is going to burn off. Literally. So, if you can paint your calipers and they look good after even a little while, you aren't using your brakes anywhere near enough to need a big brake kit. I find that pretty funny.

It won't chip off if you sand it to rough it up enough, use a good flexible paint and use some clearcoat.  To do it right you need to put the flexible additive into your paint and spray it out of a gun.
Are you talking about the interior or the calipers?

The right way to do the calipers is powdercoating but that's more than most people want to get in to. You're probably right on the interior, I wouldn't know on that one.

The right way to do it is anodizing. At least it will resist real brake temperatures.
