Recently I plastic dipped my brake calliper to match my exterior colour !

The result did come out as expected.

Plastic dip held up quite well with the heat and never had any problem with it since.

I would never think to put Plasti dip on calipers thinking it wouldn’t hold up to the heat! If it works it works! Looks good and prob only cost a few bucks.

Give us an update a month or two of driving to see if it continues to hold up.

Agreed on not thinking it would hold up to heat. Check out the rear caliper.....

Rear calliper.
Is that regular Plastidip? Their website says “Proven in temperatures from -30°F to 200°F“
That might work around town with light brake usage, but going down a mountain or on track, seems like it would likely melt off and/or burn and make a stinky mess on your wheels or paint.
