x2; Mine too.Id spray them black with VHT high temp and should be good to go. Those caliper painting kits such as from Duplicolor suck.
Also with black, if you do get some chippage here and there you dont really notice it.
On a side note, the 'Eclipse' reman calipers from Napa I bought for my FJC came black and whatever they did has held up very well for a long time...so if you can find them precoated that may be a route to take.

Tossing my experience in here just to muddy the waters. My experience with a caliper painting kit from Duplicolor was totally fine - I liked the brush on application process, and it's held up well for the better part of a decade. It's on a Volvo wagon, not a Toyota, but I can't imagine that makes a difference.
Fair enough. I'll try VHT the next time I have a need. I'm in SoCal so that probably helped a bit...I had done red on my old Mini Cooper's brand new calipers and just started getting small chips here and there on sharp edges. I am also in Ohio so winter was a thing to deal with...might have contributed. On another car I did the spray can in black and could just touch them up quickly every now and again.
