    brake caliper/drum spraying

    i want to get my embarrasing rusty drums and calipers sprayed again as last time i had them done they rusted through in less than six months ive heard that hammerite smooth is the best stuff to use but would it be better to invest in a new set of drums/calipers which will be rust free or get my current ones shot blasted and then sprayed again ?

    A mate at work as sprayed his drums with Hammerite Radiator paint and they still look good 2 years on.
    Not sure how much hotter callipers compared to drums but you'll need special paint for them I would have thought.
