Caliper paint

Does anybody have experience with painting calipers? Does the paint last more than a year? Suncoast has the paint kit on sale. I know that you can buy the Porsche decals to complete the look. Here is a link to the product:

I've seen some photos with nice results using the G2 kit from Performance Products. However I don't have any first-hand experience.

i wouldn't recommend using the brush on thyp of caliper paint. did it on my boxste, using the G2 stuff, and looked like crap. i ended up diluting it with lauer thinner and sprayed it on.

my second time around i got high temp caliper paint (spray can) at auto zone. it was MUCH easier and with really good results. it seeems to be pretty durable but i haven't taken her to the track yet
