I wouldn't ask specifically for calpier paint. Just ask for a high heat paint. That's really all it is. Maybe you could find an engine paint in a similar color. To put on them. Just a thought.

If not go to the place and ask if they can mix it in a high heat style paint.

x2 on the high temp paint. There are 'caliper paint' kits from duplicolor but they're nothing special. They come with a can of 'caliper cleaner,' aka just a metal cleaning spray, a can of paint, and some sandpaper. That's what I used the first time around, cost like $20. Second time around I just picked up a can of duplicolor high-temp engine enamel, and it worked great. $6.

The caliper paints sold by duplicolor are a bit different than regular high heat paint, but putting a few coats of high heat paint if prepped right should last.
