Put together this step by step video on how to paint your calipers as well as apply caliper decals.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us1qZIeopbE

**Do yourself a favor and purchase 2 kits. You wont get the color and coverage you want with just 1 kit!

Step one: cleaning
I use a power drill with a wire brush attachment to clean of any dust, rust, and grime that may have built up. After that spray the caliper with the supplied brake cleaner and use a rag to clean off.

Step two: Taping off
Use painters tape and tape off everything around the caliper where you dont want paint. (rotors, anything rubber, and anything to provide contrast to the color

Step there: Mix Paint & Reactant
Easy...mix the reactant and paint...

Step four: paint
Take your time and work on 2 calipers at a time. Apply paint on one caliper then while that is drying paint the other one. I would do a minimum of 3 coats if not more.

Step five: decals
Allow to dry overnight before applying decals/stickers. when removing the decal overlay, pull straight down, so that you will not pull up the decal with the overlay.

update- you can find the decals here:

Thanks Guys!!

Just a little update: The paint is holding up just as well as the day I applied it. the decals are also holding up just fine even though I did not hit them with a clear coat. Loving the look and I get so many comment on them.

Word of advice: Its pretty obvious, but should be mentioned that you want to be careful removing the wheels from the car and putting them back on. they can chip the paint if you hit them hard enough with the rim.
