Just painted mine white on my white 2021 model 3.

curious how well the paint will hold up. Brake calipers can get pretty hot. Unless its high heat paint I’d be concerned it would change color (brown) or begin to peel or flake off. Nice DIY job though.
FWIW I've used the g2 kit on cars in the past where the brakes got much hotter than these do and were subjected to winter weather (salt) and they held up great. That two-part epoxy is very strong, provided the surface prep is decent.

100% agree. Had G2 on a Mustang I owned for 10 years, never faded, chipped or cracked. Note: Ask tire shops to be careful when removing/installing wheels.
