Humbrol brand model paint, color #54 is an exact perfect match to the Brembo gold/brass color with the same metallic spec and all!
It's a bit tough to find since it's from Europe, but I found a model shop online from the U.S. that had it in stock and got a tiny tin of it for under $10 shipped. Awesome way to make a $1500+ set of used brakes look brand new.

model paint? really? for ****s sakes.

the VHT high temp gold is pretty close.....take the calipers off, sand them down, prime them, and spray them with proper paint.

some people bitch the color's not perfect with the VHT...if you're fussy find a decent paint store and get them to mix some proper high-temp paint....

Personally I'd just paint them black and get on with my life.....gold brakes are played out, saw them on a neon the other day....

actually no need to have hi-temp final color with proper prep.. The shop(s) I work for all use the same process and have done so for years with awesome results.

1. Strip the caliper to bare metal, wash, metal prep, de grease etc.

2. No prime needed take a similar light color, for Gold, Yellow Duplicor caliper paint is a great base. If you are color matching, choose a color close. Blue for Blue-blacks. black for Black or Grey, red for any red or orange etc.

2b. Paint caliper in 3 coats. First is barely a mist coat let totally dry, then #2 is a medium coverage coat. Let it dry until you can leave a small finger print or nail mark, then a final #3 moderate/heavy coat for final coverage and gloss & depth.

3. Let dry at least over-night before handling. a couple days would be ideal.

4. Now take and use a white or grey scotch-brite to open the hi-temp paint up. Spray 2 coats of your final color. 1 coat light to bite the hi-temp base, the 2nd to cover and gloss.

5. Let them dry overnight, longer the better.
