Brake Caliper Paint Job

I am about to switch out my stock wheels with something new. While I have the wheels off should I go ahead and paint the brake calipers? I thought having them match the jeeps cherry red paint job would look pretty nice. Any one do this before and have any to do tips. Maybe recomment a paint to use?

Not sure. I had painted the calipers on one of my cars years ago and it went well. They didnt get hot enough to melt the paint away.

Clean them, and use the above mentioned Duplicolor caliper paint. It works very well.
