they will NEVER be perfect unless they are powder coated.

the brake dust eats away at the paint and will begin to fade every so often.

i have painted some of my other cars calipers but i got sick of respraying them once a year, so i just gave up.

its prob the easiest thing you could do, remove the tire, cover the rotor and let it rip, good luck
