...what kind / brand of paint did you use?
I don't have the can of paint in front of me right now it's at work but it's caliper paint that I purchased at Advanced Auto Parts. If you want the brand name I can post it tomorrow. I used the same paint on my 2008 Corvette calipers and they are holding up very well after two years and I drive the Vette a lot harder than my wife drives the Cruze, LOL.

I forgot to mention the front calipers I was able to paint without removing the calipers. The rear I removed the calipers to do a better job. The rear was a little more complicated to paint.

I was impressed to see the rear brake calipers on the Cruze has brake caliper vibration dampeners to absorb vibration for smoother braking and elimate squeeking. First time I ever saw the device. It's the lower caliper pin bolt has an extension added to it with a bulk head mounted in rubber to absorb the vibration. Pretty cool idea!

I'll have to look for that when I change my pads, never seen that before either.

Looks really good!!

I want to paint my also since my Cruze is Crystal Red Metallic. It should match up with the car well I think.
