Painting calipers and c/c plates, have a question?

Before I paint these, does anyone have any recomendations? Do I need to use primer, if so, is there any good high heat primer? Any tips would be great.

Some people have told me to use engine paint since it has the highest heat rating, not sure about primer and all that stuff though sorry.

use caliper paint, you can buy it from your auto parts store, it's the only paint that will resist brake cleaner, and heat
