Painting Brake Calipers and Drums?

Just the caliper paint, and clean calipers and drums (or new drums, if they're close to needing changing anyway) for the best results, a primer won't work. I'd recommend paint rather than a spray can as it's far easier to get it exactly where you want it, and only where you want it. Paint them whatever colours you like, I don't see why what you're planning would look strange!

how to callibrate the calipers on a 2003 hyundai tiburon?

Same thing happened to me last month after changing the pads. Turned out to be a frozen caliper. If it is bad it's better just to change the whole caliper. Not a hard job for a good tech but a little involving. If you never done it before you may want a tech to do it. From my experience you can't get a new OEM caliper from a parts store. You have to go to the dealer if you want a brand new OEM.

if you want the look, go for it. To avoid a chemical fire, use high temp paint. You don't need to spend the extra for caliper paint. Use high temp engine paint, its made with ceramic. Like said, don't paint the rotors, piston or pads. Also, if you use some brake clean and a wire brush to clean them up nice before you paint 'em, the paint will last longer without flaking off.

Kind of paint to use on alloy wheels and brake calipers?

You will need to use a high temp paint on the calipers. The wheels are clearcoated from the factory so they don't oxidize, so you don't need to worry about the paint sticking to the aluminum.

A basecoat/clearcoat paint sprayed through a paint gun would be best, but to do it yourself a high quality aerosol paint will work.

I have JDM headlights + side makers and red tow hooks on my car so it has a stock yet sporty JDM look. Hope this helps!
