Exclamation Brush On Caliper Paint

Where can I find brush on caliper paint in Black? Want to paint my calipers and wheel hubs. Not sure if I should use Standard Black or Semi/Hi Gloss Black?

Many people say that G2 is better that duplicolor. Haven't tried either, so just parroting here.

Tape and paint works, that's why its better than spray can

G2 also gives you enough paint to do 3 cars.

G2 for 3 years now and it still looks new. I didn't pull the caliper when I did mine, but if I were to do it all over, I would pull the caliper for a more thorough job.

+1 on the G2 paint. Came out excellent on my last car. Haven't done anything on my E90 yet though.
