Does anybody consider brake Caliper treatment when (and if) you buy a new car?
I find Honda's calipers start rusting in a less than a year from the day of purchase.
Special paint? Powder coating? Something else? Is it work the trouble?
Heat resistant paint did not work for me... lasted 6 months and then back to square one...

I usually coat mine with high heat engine enamel. I look for one that has ceramic in it. The calipers should be removed from the car and baked after coating with a heat lamp. This will make the coating hard and it will last forever. Duplicolor has every color under the sun. Also a good idea to use a good etch primer before the color application.
