I think that would look sweet to complement the other copper accents. Wouldn't want to cover the Genesis lettering, but maybe color the rest.

Anyone know what it would cost to have this done?

I'm looking into doing that, but have not been able to find caliper paint that matches. It seems like is more Rose Gold than copper. I will continue to look and see

Yes and if anyone does it I would love to see a picture. Have thought about painting mine red but never thought of painting them copper/rose.

well, after a pretty good search and calling a few shops, it seems that doing them in something close to the copper/rose is a pretty difficult task. Guess I won't be getting them done, or doing them myself. VHT has engine paints that are closer in color than their caliper paint, but the heat rating is 1/3 less than what they recommend for caliper paint.

I was quoted $300 a set of 4 for "brass" color - though I never followed up to see what the color exactly was. This was RGX Wheel Repair, where I had work done before (another car).

I thought of copper, but wanted a bit more pop. The yellow calipers compliments the Polar Ice better. I paid $400 and I’m extremely happy with the job. The decals were done to OEM spec and locked in with a clear coat.

Why is heat resistant paint even a consideration? If the brake caliper ever got hot enough to burn paint, then the fluid and internal seals are also cooked. I personally wouldn't be concerned, and would use normal paint.

You would, but won't, will you?

DOT 3 boils at 284 DOT 5 boils at 356 degrees. Spray paint is good to about 250.

The typical generic "normal driving" temperature range for well balanced vehicle brakes is 100 to 200 degrees. A controlled mountain grade descent can produce brake temperatures between 200 and 400 degrees.

Track days could be higher.
Found this:
Do brake calipers need high temp paint?
it depends on the type of driving you do. for normal street driving you don't need high temp. i used the same paint that's on my car. if you do any kind of racing you will need high temp, especially road racing.
