Looks great!

Can Hammerite take the heat, as I thought I had read you needed special paint for calipers? The Hammerite website mentions a High Heat range, which seems to be for fire surrounds, etc.

One more question: can you simply just paint over a rusty capiler or is it better to scrub it down (assuming a wire brush or something very abrasive) before applying?
