I've done it before and it came out nice. However the only color you can do is black, don't even try silver or red.

Those silver ones look real nice...but they get dirty overtime? Can't a clearcoat prevent that from happening?

is it safe to paint the caliper all around? even over the 2 rubber hose parts and the little cap thingy? what about on the inside of the calipers?

i just got both calipers and carriers in and debating whether to paint the complete caliper or just the visible part....... any advice?
