So I have not been able to find high temp caliper/engine spray can in Bronze just in gold which is just lighter nothing with flakes, but I have found it only in rim paint, so I was wondering if I spray the calipers in high temperature primer or a base color of high temperature gold, then the bronze rim paint then on top a clear coat of high temp as well will that hold on the road and on the caliper?

Do you have an example of what color you want? Bronze could be any tint

Burnt copper?

This appears to be VHTs gold

I am looking bronze to match my Brass money wheels, the burnt copper is just too bright compared the brass monkey wheels, the lighter gold like VHT but made by duplicolor and since it’s lighter it maybe a good contrast, but that’s my last plan if I can find a bronze like this
That is closer to my brass monkey wheels

That’s why I was thinking of high temperature primer on the bottom and high temperature clear on top to protect the paint in the middle

Yes but all of them use High Temp caliper Or engine paint spray , the only bronze I found is not high temp but Rim paint,
so idk if the paint will hold up to the heat of the calipers on my Scat
so I was wondering if I do a high temperature primer on the bottom and high temperature clear on top being that the rim bronze paint that is not high temp
But it would be in the middle, will it with stand the high temperature like a traditional high temp caliper paint

I did I am sure it will withstand heat but for how long that’s my concern, I guess I won’t find out until try it

I agree, I think beyond power coating, this is your best bet

I was thinking of white calipers but I am thinking is going to be a hassle to keep clean
