Painted brake caliper question.

This winter...err, this customizing season, I am planning on painting my Brembo calipers (Red). I was wondering if painting the calipers will require more maintenance. In other words, once they are painted, are they going to show dirt and brake dust that requires frequent cleaning?

My Camaro is never driven in the snow...or rain, for that matter. After every ride, before I put on the car cover, I do a quick wipe and clean with a Kozak, clean the windshield, and wipe off the chrome wheels. I am not sure if I want to add caliper cleaning to that list.

No more than what you normally do with your current calipers. I clean my calipers each time I wash my car.

That's what I was afraid I was going to hear. I really don't pay much attention to them now, because they're gray and they don't show dirt.

...but if I do them in red? I am having second thoughts about painting them now.
