"Have used Hammerite Smooth before but not on brake calipers. It's excellent. It's also not as expensive as 'proper' caliper paint. It goes on smoothly, very run resistant and dries quickly. Mine were older calipers with a little surface rust to be cleaned off and ideally 3 coats would have been better but didn't have the time. Calipers look great. 250ml easy enough to do several coats on 4 calipers."

Pros: good coverage, easy to apply
"I bought this to paint a metal go kart to prepare it for sale. It had previously been painted but there were areas of rust and after prep, bare metal. This paint went on well on all surfaces, the bare metal needing two coats, but the finished surfaces looked very good. No obvious streaks and good coverage. I used a cheaper alternative on another product but will now use this paint on any future products."

"Clicked and collected from the local stoire - very efficient process that saves a potential wasted journey. The paint was used for brake calipers - though it's not heat-rated it doesn't seem to discolor. Good coverage and a nice solid finish"
