METALCAST™ is a durable enamel finish that is oil, gas and heat resistant to 500º F intermittently.

intermittently? so not all the time. My brakes get to a lot more than that!!

500F = 260C.....

although i would like some for my cam cover :) perfect!

nah says in there small print can only be shipped by ground order to the lower 48 states. read up it says that halfords stuff is naf.

Im gona do sum experimenting! i picked up a can of red hammerite just to get a heat seal base coat, now ive got a bag of red metal flake gona go over the top with this and see how it comes out!

Its only calipers so who cares if it comes straight off lol!

will the VHT laquer ontop pretty much just give it a good seal and stop it from running??

iv metallic red paint from halfords i was gonna use on my rocker cover! if i got another can of this and sprayed the calipers

then just sealed it with a VHT laquer it should do the job??

gonna be a bit of a bastard tho as this red paint is to just go ontop of metal with no primer or anything and

my calipers are already matt red :redface:

yea dont think it will be a problem on the rocket cover, just worry about the callipers as they heat up so much more

ill have a look about anyways ;)
