BeetleGo, Just incase your thinking of doing your calipers.

I painted mine back in April and they still look great. I talked to a lot of people at shows who had painted them also. You can by a kit for $50 to paint them . Or you can do like many of us did and just use Rustoleum. I used the Rustoleum brush on paint. No need to remove the calipers, just the wheels. Cleaned them first with brake cleaner and after they dried painted them with sunburst yellow. The paint flowed real nice, no brush marks when they dried. Actually they looked better than my friends, who paid $50 for the Folic Tech kit. His looks like they could use another coat were mine look solid yellow. It took me about 4 hrs totally. But I also cleaned each wheel front and back and waxed them while the paint was drying. I think waxing the wheels makes it eaiser to get that darn brake dust off.
