    yeah don't worry. That paint is good up to like 1000 degrees or something. If its good enough for the calipers, its good enough for the brake pads. Plus its on the back of the brake pad so its not like thats touching the rotors really.

    No squeeling of my brakes after painting the calipers. To the OP: it will wear off, don't worry. Gotta ask though, why didn't you take the brake pads off first?

    the truth, i was too lazy, i painted them while they were on the car i didnt even unhook em. came out pretty good though. i just needed them to match the red brembos on the front tires.
