Default Caliper Paint

whats up people? So I decided to paint the wilwoods yellow since I have a bule color maxima with black g37s wheels. I see some people use spary paint and other use brush. I'm confused here which one should I use or will look more like a pro work. Im thinking about buying g2 or VHT bright yellow. but don't know if I should spary them or use the brush?
Those who have painted there calipers what did you use? I have the calipers on the car right now and if I do can spary can then I have to tape a lot of stuff but if I use the G2 then I don't how it's going to come out with using a brush.

Thanks for any input if you guys can gave me here.

If you use a brush you might see the brush strokes, if you spray paint them you might have runs in the paint. Im going with the spraypaint way, bought hi temp brake caliper paint from AutoZone, hope it helps

I painted mine with a brush. I guess if you get really close you might see some brush marks,but no one will get that close. Just buy the duplicolor kit and put it on thick.

If you don't want to pull your brakes apart then brush it on. You just might not be able to get all the nooks and crannies with the brush.

If you want a more professional look, then pull em apart hit em with a wire wheel and/or sand the crap out of em and then spray em.
