What's the best brand paint for painting calipers?

I want to paint them dark grey but haven't been able to find that color. Closest is black or silver. Anyone know of a brand with dark grey?

Brush on vs spray on; anyone have experience with both?

The first time I painted my calipers I took them off, wire brushed them to shiny metal, and then sprayed them with VHT (BHT?) brake caliper paint. They looked great for almost 2 years and then started getting little chips. Now I use the same paint with a brush to touch up. I don't think I would take them off the next time - the brush method works fine.

Fine with heat, just bare in mind it wont be a 100% flat finish. Its a somewhat wavy, THICK shiny coat. If you look at it 20 days later itll still look like its wet, thats how nice the color and shine holds up.
