GTA: Brake Caliper painting

Was at Simply Tire yesterday to get a tire patched and noticed that they are running a sale till the end of the month on caliper painting so I thought I'd pass it along to those in the GTA.

All the tire shops are in some kind of competition suddenly LOL, everyone dropped the caliper pricing from 100 to 80 now down to 60.

Should I change brakes pad before painting the calipers? I hated my calipers because there are too many rust on them.

My personal thought is yes, if you need to change them soon anyway and have the time. But if not then I don't think you really need to. It would just minimize the chance of scratching up the paint job as you fiddle with the caliper to get the pads swapped. But having said that, the sale is only running till the end of the month (essentially this is the last week). Really wish I had found out about this sale earlier in the month haha.
