Default Brembo caliper paint repair

Hello all. I did an absolute brain dead move. I forgot to but the spacers on and rolled about an inch before I caught myself. However, I did scrape up the paint. Anyone know the proper paint / paint match so I can fix this?

There is no paint that'll match it perfectly. You have two options:

- go to your local bodyshop and have them respray the caliper and match the color as close as possible
- get the complete set powdercoated

The duplicolor caliper paint won't match up perfectly.

I had scratched up calipers and sent them to and had the whole set powdercoated and rebuilt for $300.00
