Just make sure you clean them real well before you paint. If your spray painting them mask off more than necessary.

Avoid "Spray Paint" if you can, very messy and a Paint cloud will fill the area your working in and get all over your car, nomatter how well you try to cover or tape off.

Re: calipers!!!!!!

Id take the calipers OFF , Clean them with brake clean and scuff them with sand paper / clean them again , then paint them away from the car ........ thats the best way , a little extra work taking them off is well worth the outcome .... and they,re easy to remove ...

yea, the one at the car wash works well,
also, DO NOT. drive your stang for 24-32 hours even if it's dry to the touch, because the heat from your brakes will cause the paint to flake off and look terrible in the long run.
