umm you should NEVER paint your rotors lol If you mean calipers?? There's a kit you can buy at CT IIRC

As for the drums, don't waste your time, get a rear disk conversion!

There is a part of your rotors that you can paint... NOT the part the pad touches, but the part that sticks out a bit. Just take off the wheel, take a wire brush on a drill and clean them up and get any rust and crap off, then mask them off and paint. The drums are easier cuz there isn't as much to mask. As mentioned, there is a kit you can buy, or it also comes in a spray. Just be patient!

It looks pretty good when it's done. Mine are rusting right now and I can't wait to get them painted. I'll post a pic when I get it done.

The inside of the rotor that actually contacts the hub. Not the contact for the pads. It get painted and keeps them from rusting. It looks good too.
