Best Automotive High Temperature Paint

High Temperature High Gloss Self Leveling Brush On Black G2 Brake Caliper Paint System Kit
This top-of-the-line BRAKE Caliper Paint System Set from G2.
"Paint will even out into a nice layer."
"I applied the paint to all (4) calipers and still had enough paint left over that you could paint all (4) rotors as well."
"It rather "cures" which creates a super hard, durable coating that is heat resistant to 900+ degrees. Pros. - Higher quality than typical rattle can paint. - Included brake cleaner. - Very durable results. Cons. - None."
"Not wanting to spend a few thousand dollars to upgrade my brake system i decided to go the cheaper route for the time being. The G2 caliper paint seemed to be the best on the market from what I've read. It worked nice and was a lot less time consuming but it didn't last long at all, especially after several high pressure washes...The G2 paint system seemed to be a great alternative with better, longer lasting results!! I cleaned the brakes right before I applied the paint to get off all the caked on brake dust and grease but i didn't spend a ton of time cleaning them...I do HIGHLY recommend you purchase a better quality brush."
"The best caliper paint kit."
"Was skeptical with the brush technique but I am VERY happy with the turn out."
"I put 2 coats per wheel, and it went on nice and thick, no brush strokes in paint, just a really smooth finish."
"The brake calipers have been exposed to a year of road grime and a season of road salt."

High Temperature High Gloss Self Leveling Brush On Red G2 Brake Caliper Paint System Kit
This top-of-the-line BRAKE Caliper Paint System Set from G2.
"The paint dries pretty fast, so you can usually go around the car and apply another coat as soon as you finish all 4 brakes. I let the paint dry for probably close to 36 hrs afterwards without driving, but I think I put the wheels back on, and got the car off the stands after just a few hours, and mine turned out great."
"Painted calipers with this kit, applied decals and then applied VHT clear coat."
"I watched a number of youtube videos showing different ways to apply this product and other brush on types."
"From start to finish it took ~3 hours: this includes jacking the car up, wheel removal, painting, and multiple coats."
"This stuff seems tuff too as it didn't scratch easily when I reapplied the caliper clips."
"When you use this: 1 - Make sure you can do all calipers in the same day within a short period of time since it starts to harden rather quickly. I removed my pads and taped everything off so it would look awesome and not get on the pads or on any parts that shouldn't get paint on them like the brake hoses."
"The day i descided and wanted to test the quality with finger nail testing."
"range and applied 4 coats at the recommended intervals to all 4 wheels being careful to be aware of the time factor on the viability of the epoxy. Initially, I was pretty happy with the results but considering all the work I went through to ensure a good bond, because of the peeling, I wouldn't recommend spending the money on this product."

"Even when it works the scratch is still there - you can see the scratch line in the sun but the white is gone so you don't see it unless you are bending down to look at it. It can take 10 minutes to do a long scratch since you need to work at a right angle and do it in sections."
"Have used in the past."

"One quart is more than enough to complete these projects and still have plenty left for touch ups down the road."
"It is UV sensitive so if you wanna paint a part that is exposed to the sun just give it a top coating with another paint."

"Some wax and grease remover helped to disolve and smooth down what I could not scrape off. I used a little foam paint brush and trimmed it so it fit in the bottle. You can puncture the tube on top with the punch tool on the caulk gun. Was my first time to use a caulk gun or urethane or change a vehicle window. The caulk gun, urethane, primer, and window scrapper cost about $75."

"Worked perfectly- dries very fast."
"I used it to prime the surface of a rear windshield housing on an Acura MDX and sanded down the surface to the bare metal and it dried really fast (within minutes of applying.)."
"Fixed the convertible top on Toyota MR2 Spyder 3M 08692 primer, 3M 08600 window weld, and a pack of molding hold down 6 pack from Glass Technology."
"This was probably the real reason the window repair was a success."
"great primer but container does not come with the dab stick so you need to get a paint brush that is small enough to fit into bottle, which is difficult."
"This is required before you caulk with 3M Window Weld."

Best Automotive Clear Coats

USC Spray Max 2k High Gloss Clearcoat Aerosol (4 PACK)
Size: 4 PACK. 2 component aerosol clearcoat that is easy to apply, flows smooth and dries to a long lasting, high gloss finish.
"Pros: Sprays evenly, high gloss, easy to use. Cons: N/A. This is the closest thing to professional grade clear coat from a spray paint rattle can."
"for DIY folks who want a reliable clearcoat but do not want the hassle or price paid for getting an auto body shop to clear for you. I did my prior research on this and other suitable aerosol clear coats and none matched the quality of this product. This isn't your run of the mill rattle can from autozone or home depot and even if it was, you shouldn't be using aerosol spraycans, especially Spraymax 2k in your garage/basement/bedroom unless it is set up properly for ventilation. To activate the hardener, shake vigorously for about 2min, remove the attached red button press, turn the can upside down and place the red button on the activator switch (totally made up the name for that part). You won't really get any notification that you did it right other than a slight click, but if you did, the red button will stay in place. People fail to remember that surface preparation as well as outside temperature play a huge role in the outcome of your finish."
"For preparation I made sure I sprayed over an 800 grit wet sanded scratch from a 3m sanding sponge on top of freshly sprayed Dupont spraybase basecoat mixed at my local autobody supply store. Would be great product for wet sanded cloudy headlights or door jams / hood / bumper touch up."
"That makes it easy to put down coats evenly and without producing runners."
"In my case I nicked a part and the whole top clear coat peeled off like a snake shedding its skin."
"Worked great for a Do it yourself project on our daughters car (fender), it's an easy inexpensive way to get a much more professional looking result."
"Very happy with the result."
"The key as always with paint is prep."

"after using it on the Volvo trim I could not believe at how well it restored the trim."
"(Yes, I know that right side fender had dirt on it, but I can assure you that washing off the dirt that was there wouldn't really make it any better."
"As you can see from the photos, the light grey areas show how bad the plastic was faded."
"I have not treated the black plastic around my bumpers and bottom of the car for years and it was completely grey instead of black. I put it on with the sponge that came with it (the product texture is thick and grey), rub it on, not much is happening, so I keep going… and only a few minutes later—almost like a miracle—the black color is coming out."
"I’ve tried many detailing products, and I must say that this stuff is the best."
"I was surprised but it even brought back a good bit of lustre to my highly oxidized roof and window trim."
"Amazing product!"
"Having used a TON of other trim restoration products over the last 20 years, I’ll have to say this is my favorite. I washed and dried the flares on my Jeep and applied the product, let it sit for 10 minutes then buffed it off."
