Paint Calipers

Does anyone have tips or a good tutorial on how to paint calipers on your own? I asked a garage and they said 150$ for labor and paint. So I thought I might aswell do it my self! But I am not planing on taking the calipers off my disks, I was wondering if it would be fine to simply paint it but cover up the disk?

Any ideas?

Re: Paint Calipers

$150 for labor and paint! Screw that, I got the G2 caliper paint online and it came out great! And I painted the calipers straight on the car (no removal of anything except the wheel of course).
