It tool about 4 hours allowing a hour between painting and putting the tires back on. It was really easy though.

It cost like 12 bucks for the caliper cleaner and the paint and like 5 bucks for painters tape.

I got everything at advanced auto parts. It worked out great! Really easy. Hardest part is the taping.

Re: brake calipers

its easy once you get the hang of it. Just take your time on the prep work. The results will be awesome....
