hey man, i gotta say your car looks like its coming together real nice. great work! now for the calipers...i just went to auto zone and boughtt the caliper paint there ...now, all i did was take the wheel off and i painted the exposed part of the caliper..i didnt see a need to remove everything..but if you are replacing the rotors too, you might as well..jus make sure you clean EVERY spec of dirt off of them ...then paint each wheel do about 2-3 coats..i did 2..and then DONT touch or drive your car for 24 hours..and if your car is black, i would go with some white brembo stickers like i did, it looks Hottt..well thats what ppl say. i love it though. its been a year now and about 23,000 miles later and the paint still looks good, i will probably recoat them around 30,000. and the stickers have done very well to my suprize, they barely ever get dirty and they dont come off unless you scrub too hard. lol...heres a pic ..

I painted mine also. Did fronts with the $40 Eastwood paint; and the rears with the $20 Autozone (it might be even cheaper). Cannot tell any difference. Paint is holding well after 15K miles.

Hey!!

I'm doing mine in red in the spring when I change the wheels. Red looks great no matter what and if you don't like the Brembo stickers you can go with the brushed aluminum V emblems. They'll look pretty good too, you attach them after the color and before you clearcoat them.

The previos owner had the wheels and callipers powder coated. The red callipers really set it off imho.
