U only need to paint the front side that u see through the rim...Its really easy to do. I painted the 96's and my Silverados calipers too. The Duplicolor kit includes brake cleaner, a paint brush, sandpaper, and of Course the ceramic paint! I put 2 coats on each Caliper, about 15 mins apart. The paint drys really super fast!
Avoid getting the paint on ur hands.... Its really tough to get off!
