That would be my suggestion, actually just ground off (without the paint)

I'm soooo over painted calipers..


When I placed my order for these..
I ordered the Raybestos Pro Caliper Assembly, which included the Caliper,Caliper Bracket,Bleeder Valve Screw and Clevis Pin..
The only thing that wasn't in the box was a Banjo Bolt..

Oh yeah, and they both came without the "Cobra" lettering on them..

In case anyone's interested, here's the part numbers:

Raybestos Pro Caliper Assembly [Driver Side] FRC10604
Raybestos Pro Caliper Assembly [Passenger Side] FRC10603

Someday, I'll actually get these installed..

Problem is when you leave them bare you're opening them up to grime and corrosion, cast aluminum ends up looking crappy even in mild environments. I'm over painting them in rainbow colors, but definitely not over painting them. Same with rotor hats/vents for that matter.

Eastwood makes some good products, especially with bare metal in mind..

This stuff could be the ticket for bare parts, you just want to protect-->>Eastwood ExoArmour

Look at the temperature resistance!
Quote:
Wipe on, spray or dip to protect bare metal, paint, fiberglass and more.

•Easy to apply - Wipe on, spray on, or dip
•Protects bare metal, plastic, fiberglass, ceramic and painted surfaces
•Tested to 2000F degree for temperature resistance
•Passed 4000 hour salt spray test
•Unaffected by MEK and other solvents

This easy to apply clear coating will protect almost anything from corrosion, UV damage, and more.
Originally developed for military and aviation applications.
This tough flexible coating has been tested for 2000 F degree temperature, and 4000 hours of salt spray resistance.
It won’t yellow, crack or peel, and isn’t affected by solvents or chemicals. Great for keeping polished aluminum at its mirror finish best.
Use it to protect metal brake and fuel lines, as well as other under car parts. Protects without adding a glossy finish.

As great as eastwood products are, they're way overkill for what are wear items, VHT or duplicolor high temp do just fine in this application

I painted the alternator I rebuilt with the duplicolor chrome paint, and it looks great; it's not gloss chrome, but it's nice looking, and it's a hi-temp paint to boot.

There was some roughness where I ground down the letters, so some paint to help conceal that was definitely in order.

I was on the fence between silvery-gray and red... but I figured red would be fairly convincing since that's the color of the car. If I hate it, I can paint them again.
