When painting the brake calipers do I just need to get the high heat paint and spray them? Or is there prep work needed before?

I did it with dupli color caliper paint and everything you need is in the box, it comes with a cleaner for pre painting. It is $19.99

I did mines with ceramic caliper paint( forgot the brand) it's made for the calipers heat and doesn't attract dust. I cleaned my rotors with a brush and soap or caliper cleaner and I gave it a quick sand down with fine grain sand paper. Cover everything that shouldn't be painted and then give it soft coats of paint, let it dry for 5 min and continue again several coats with dry time in between. I did 5 coats. Once your happy how it looks your done.

I used engine paint, good up to 500 degrees. Bigger variety of colors, I think. Brake cleaner and scotch pad is your best friend.
