I just used the duplicolor kit from canadian tire. As for the prep, I used the caliper cleaner from the kit. I bought 2 steel bruches though and went to town on it. My car is still pretty much brand new so there wasnt much work. My friends 06 cobalt, however, was rusted to shit. After I used som windex to remove any dust that remained. I used windex because I needed something wet for the dust, but it needed to dry quick.
I put 5 thin coats on each caliper. Each coat took about 10 - 15 minutes to dry.
As for the girl, yeah shes earning her keep. This 3 year old is addicted to cars and Sevendust. Really strange. Anyways, my next mod is going to be my sound system, so ill keep you guys posted. thanks again for the nice comments.
