We got the same rides, so I totally understand why you would want to do this. Mine seem to be rust colored most of the time.. Im looking to paint mine as well.

From the research I have read on the subject this is what's suggested..

1. Do not spray paint them. The paint will melt off.
2. If you do paint them, have them done professionally.. Disassemble and remove the the calipers.. powder coat, and paint.
3. The amazon "covers" seem to be enough for some people.. but with paint you got that protection aspect to this that you won't get with the covers.

Hope that helps..

I have a 2016 TLX and wanted red calipers. Is painting the calipers a safe option or should I buy red calipers? I've also see red caliper covers.
Use high resistant heat paint only. I don't recommend using spray paint unless you remove the calipers. I use a good small artist brush so I don't have to remove the caliper and it does an excellent job.
