How did you clean your caliper?? what did you use?

And did you just cover your rotors and other stuff with the plastic and painted the calipers??

I will answer everyone here:


After 3rd year, there start to have rust on the rear drum and the paint peels off. The caliper is ok.

Yeah, just cover with paper and paint, no need to worry too much.

Paint rear drum black is way better than no paint at all.

I'm also curious about how you prepped the calipers and rums before painting. I would imagine a stiff wire brush and maybe sandpaper? How did you get in the nooks and crannies?
Also, do you need a special high-temp primer?
