Default SOM Brake Caliper Paint?

Anybody ever seen it in this color? If so, where at? I want to paint mine cause they aren't lookin' real good, but SOM is the only color I think would be worth it.

Thanks in advance

Please let me know if you find out where to get some SOM paint in a useful media...
You can get the little touchup bottles from the dealer, but I don't think you'd want to use those to paint the calipers...?

It was done a while ago.. The guy bought the aresol touch cans from the dealer.. Just make sure that you use a couple layers of high temp clearcoat.

When I went to my local dealer to get aerosol cans of SOM, he said I was nuts and GM wouldn't do that...

I used a Plasticoat Copper Metallic. It's not 100% exact, but close enough.

Many autobody supply stores can make aerosol paints in ANY color you like. Asking someone at a GM dealer for anything is like kicking yourself in the *****!
