question. is there any wrong way of painting your calipers?
From the inside....with water colors?

Seriously, brush them down and get rid of the dust/rust, best to use paint that can stand heat. Don't spray the disc.

Basically there is no wrong way if anyone needs a step by step or sumthin id def be willing to help them out with it, basically get engine heat spray most pref in black then the color for the caliper (blue, red, etc..) basically like he said once u remove the wheel clean the drums, and the caliper you might want to use caliper cleaner (basically mineral spirits) then just tape around the rotor and the caliper first spray the drum in black, then cover that with tape and newspaper and then do the caliper just a quick run through, i have a better step by step guide tho, oh and you might want to use about 3-4 thin coats with the caliper paint
