Default Painting brake calipers question

I plan to reprint my calipers a different color and wondered what most people use, brush on or spray. My first application was with a brush using the Duplicolor kit in blue .
What would you recommend?

Check with Nitro. He sprayed his. They look great till he decided to grind them down and do a custom treatment. It's on his project page somewhere.

This Is my project page.

This is a great read from one of our own! Badglas

Cool Re: Painting brake calipers question

I would use whatever works for you.
But, if you need a custom I did for soonercruiser, you can mix the Duplicolor colors.

Biggest step is cleaning and degreasing before painting.
