    You can buy paint 'specifically' for calipers but I can't see the point in spending all that extra money when a small tin of Hammerite gives the exact same (if not better!) results.

    It's an age old argument - some will swear by caliper paint, others will swear by Hammerite. Personal choice in the end - I went with Hammerite and they still look good today

    domino can I just say, the majority of your posts, in my mind, are utter shite. However, the post above is admirable, clear and to the point.

    It is educated, unbiased and what I would suggest is the correct choice.

    My hat off to you, sir.

    couldn't help myself. lmao.
