Calipers can be DIY'd but Hammerite tends to burn and go black in my experience, you'd be better off with high temp caliper paint. Not so hard, but it takes a day, 4 stands, wheels off, lots of wire brushing, and waiting for the various layers of paint to dry... easier in the summer!
Having looked where you are based the brakes must run much higher temperatures than in the UK
Not had a problem in the UK with Hammerite but I have used other Hi temp products as well with good results.
