Default Brembo Touch-up Paint

I had a set of Endless pads put on my Z today and the retard chipped by Brembo caliper with the rim. (By the way, my Z has a whole 575 miles on it. Wanted to kill the guy.) I have done some searching, but have been unable to find any Brembo caliper touch-up paint. Does anyone know of any touch-up paint? Specifically, gold.

the next best thing which is really pretty close is the Honda Inca Gold Touch up Paint... get it from a local Honda Dealer.

Yeah, I saw that on a thread on another board. Down side is that it is not high temp paint.

And yes, I am making them fix it.

you actually don't need high temp paint on the calipers. the aluminum does not heat up that much where the paint is...most of the heat is transferred from the pad to the backing plate to the pistons.

I called Brembo for suggestions on touch up paint for my 03 Track calipers after suffering some rock damage/gouging from on off track excursion! They could not help, just like Nissan could not supply touchup paint for the Brembo calipers. HOWEVER, if you go to your local Hobbytown USA hobby shop, they carry Humbrol enamel paint. Buy a tinllet of Metallic #54, along with a package of Microbrush - fine size. These are small, disposable brushes. Worked like a charm and matches my 03 calipers perfectly right out of the tin!

HTH,
