So you didn't have to add clearcoat to protect the paint? Might be worth the extra protection...

Just want to say thanks for the idea and the writeup. I bought the blue duplicolor paint and it looks great, even on my crappy stock calipers. I was sore as hell from being bent over for a few hours, but it looks good in the end.

Seems like a lot of people are asking about clear but nobody that has gone through with this has actually used it. Is there a reason for that?
I can't imagine using a high temp clear would cause any issues
