Silver Caliper Paint

My TourX's hood s relatively clean , but the rest of the car is covered with a thick layer of road grime & salt. I'm glad I took the time apply Rust preventive and extra under body paint when it was new. All is holding up very well, but the zinc coating on the calipers is looking a bit shabby. The Calipers stand out with aftermarket wheels.
Can anyone recommend a good silver caliper paint? I want to keep the stockish subdued look, while still keeping them attractive.

Thanks

You may want to look at POR 15 silver caliper paint which is a brush on, they also have a high heat aluminum. I've used a exhaust high heat semi black with success as mine were black front and cast back, but I would recommend reading any and all reviews on any caliper paint as they range from great to crap also on the application requirement then decide what will work for needs.

Remember it is the internet, but I've see worse.

I went over to the Corvette forum as they seem to be a little more OCD in a good way, but they are brutal if it's a junk product. Not saying that's the final word but another resource to get some real world reviews, luckily I have the 95 Lesabre as a "test mule" before using a product on the real vehicle's LOL.
