I just painted my rear calipers, they sure look a lot better. about 14thousand times. Here's the breakdown: Stock is beautiful: Take the pad bracket off of the piston. I kept the piston section on, BC I didn't wanna unhook the line or e brake. Prep for paint i hit it good with a wire wheel on my grinder to remove the surface rust. this is really the quickest way to prep it for paint. Did the pad (outer bracket) in a vice, same way Got some high temp paint. The only had silver, black or red in they're "caliper" paint. So i got this wheel paint, and a clear. 8) The clear makes it much more shiny, I'd recommend it. I masked off the area, and the piston and bleeder cap. sprayed 3 coats of color, and 3 of clear. let it dry for one day, and reassembled, remounted. the only PITA part is getting the bottom bolt in with the Ebrake cable right in front of the hole. Had to unhook the cable from the LCA bracket, slide up the outer (pad) braket to get them in. I also swapped my rotors. huge visual improvement, especially with smaller spoked wheels. they also stop better Put it together, remounted (which was kindof a PITA with the ebrake cable right in front of the bottom hole. I'm happy with how it turned out!!
