What Clear for Calipers?

The clear coat on my factory painted calipers has started to peel

The paint itself is in good condition

What's the 'best' way to restore the finish?

Is there such thing as high temperature clear, and if so, is that required?

Would rattle clear be good for a small job like this, or is that always the wrong move to make?

No rattle can paint is going to hold up on brake calipers I don't care what it claims on the can. Catalyzed urethane clear or powder coating is the only thing that will come close to holding up long term.
