One final point is that if you time your brake caliper painting with a rotor and pad change you have to, as part of the service, remove the caliper bracket. This allows you to paint them bracket more professionally so an FYI. For my car I have to do this in two stages as my pads and rotors were still pretty meaty. TAKE YOUR TIME. Don't drip.
