First things first, get the wheels off. :lol2:

Duplicolor makes a great kit, but it's not in a spray...to my knowledge (Lurk on Duplicolor's site) the kit, you actually brush on the paint. So you don't have to take apart the calipers at all, and minimal, if no masking at all.

Not too sure. It never sat right on the top, and the oil cap never stayed on. I painted mine, and sold it for $45. Not bad considering I got it for free. :lol2:
