there are 2 15mm bolts holding the caliper to the knuckle. Once you have the wheel off, they should be fairly obvious on the backside.

Heck I didnt even take mine off just bought that duplicolor kit. Comes with a brush, paint, and tape.

to get the entire setup off, there 2 15mm hold the caliper on, then there 2 17mm's i believe holding the other piece of caliper on (the bracket). what i did so i didnt have to redo my brake fluid and stuff, is just laid a block under the caliper and wrapped the line, and near by things up so they wouldnt get overspray. so then you dont have to disconnect the lines! :)

my friends eclipse we just did his calipers tonight, fire engine red caliper paint, and his 4 bolts holding his caliper on were all 15mm. so its real simple to figure it out lol

you cant do it either way. i mean you could do it the other way, but how fun is it if you can just take a brush and just paint them. you gotta do atleast some sort of work lol
