    no need to prime, just use hammerite, 250ml tin is plenty. just wire brush off all the crap on the caliper first. i doubt theres any special way to paint drums, just dont clog up the 'join' (can't think of the right word) with paint

    As above. Use a wire brush to get rid of all the brake dust and rust off them, and use Hammerite in your colour of choice. Jobs a goodun
