I'm glad this DIY has helped some people tackle this time consuming, but relatively safe and easy appearance mod. The beauty of it is, you pick the color and what decals (if any) you want to apply. The key was unbolting the brake line mount which is about 16" away from the caliper, this allows you to pull that caliper out into the open, paint both the front/back of the caliper and protect the car from overspray. I do recommend doing 2 calipers at once because it allows you to alternate painting one caliper while the other is drying.

It would be nice if Chevrolet would offer painted brake calipers as an option like they do on the new Corvette. Oh well.
