Question Trying to paint calipers

Hey everyone as most of us know the caliper covers are very expensive! A while back I seen someone had painted their calipers, I would also like to paint mines. I invested on a floor jack, stands, wheel chocks. Now I guess all that is left is the torque wrench, as far as the socket, which sockets would I need to remove the tires and could I use my impact to only remove the lugs? there AMR wheel w/black acorns. Maybe invest in a wrench/socket set? Thank you.

Use a deep well. Or a tire iron if they are keyed just find one that will fit the key. Be careful with an impact you can crossthread the lug or strip it from the hub if its too powerful.

Personally I would use a tire iron and a torque wrench
