If you have the money, have it done professionally with a good sanding and the use of a flex agent. Go for gloss black to go with the body paint. Mine costs about $300 front and back.

Those look very nice, and the price seems good too.

New rims are choice.

Your old stock rims look really bad.

JUST A HEADS UP!

Cleaning the calipers is one thing.

But, painting them is quite another! Plan to have to do touch up painting twice a year, at least! With the heat that is generated on the fronts especially, practically any rock that hits them will chip the paint; and the brake dust itself will discolor the paint(unless black).

Mine look great in a darker red. But, if I had to do it over again....
