I want to paint my calipers and am gonna get the stuff to do it at the store but dont know how good it will come out since they are not new calipers. I know I have to brush the crap out of them to get the rust off, but wondering how the end result will be once cleaned and painted.

I used a wire wheel on the calipers when I replaced my brakes worked great.
I also painted the caliper high temp epoxy paint, although I sprayed the paint into the cap and brushed it on. Coverage was better and the paint dries real fast so I was less messy and l was able to control how much paint to put on.

Using a can of compressed air can help clean the brakes a lot too before painting.

I would have done red, red is my fav color, but if I had done red on a blue car I might as well have put white stars on the hood and an eagle on the back window

Do you need any special tools to take the calipers off or put them back on? I've never done this before but want to take off the rust in a big way. I guess painting them after that would be kinda cool too. The car's gold and I'm going with black rims soon so it'll probably go with a black paint. B)

to take the calipers off, all you need is a couple of flat head screwdrivers and a 7mm hex wrench. They come off pretty easy. There is a DIY in the FAQ section that is really easy to follow and has good pictures. I took mine off in about 20 minutes, everything came off very smoothly.

I was afraid the 7mm bolts holding the cals on would be rusted, but weren't
