Default Repairing scuffed brembo, paint matching as well...

I'm looking to color match my brembos to my Sedona red pearl wrx. Duplicolor ruby red engine enamel (with ceramic) seems to match close enough in pictures. They also offer non high heat colors and finishes but I'm not sure how well they hold up.

How much heat do brembos get exposed to approximately? The ruby red is 500f if I'm not mistaken. Would I be able to paint an undercoat of high heat paint (1000-2000) and then use whatever matches on top and high temp clear on top and not have any heat related paint issues or what? I'm trying to avoid powder coating if at all possible.

Also, what would be the best method for repairing/finishing this damaged area on my caliper? It's not terrible but its definitely an eye sore.

From all the reading I've done on the topic, either paint or powder should hold up for basic dd and light track use. Powder can discolor with heavy track use. I'm gonna powder my 4 pots grape over a silver base, we'll see how it ends up.

I didn't want to powdercoat because of having to reseal them.... But I may end up going that route afterall. I'm really on the fence on what to do. Anyone know how to take care of that scuff?

Best you can do is grind the scuff smooth and blend with a finer grit finishing wheel. Sand paper alone won't help.

Then prep and paint. The G2 caliper paint is very good, but so is high temp from a home depot/Lowes with proper prep and multiple coats.
