    Yes x3

    Clean with the sprayand brush, then scuff with a red pad. Then spray again with cleaner, and use an air gun to blow all the residue and cleaner away.

    wire brush, scuff pad, and 100 grit sand paper.. A dremel works good to remove casting imperfections as well. (maybe a little overkill, but like i said before, the better prep work you do, the better it'll turn out)... i.e spend 80% of the time prepping, and 20% painting

    For my calipers I just wire brushed them by hand and shot them with the dura caliper paint.

    For the rotor hats I just scrubbed them with a scotchbrite and shot them.
