8. You will notice the dust shield is attached to the backing plate with a series of spot welds. Drill these out with a properly sized bit. You don't have to drill through the backing plate, just the dust shield. Use a stout screwdriver to pry the dust shield loose. Use of a BF hammer may be required.

When you see this...

...reward yourself with a beer.

Optional step. Paint your calipers. Tape off your brake line. Use newspaper as needed. Don't spray anything that isn't your caliper. If your car is as dirty as mine was, overspray (dust) will not be a problem.

(Note I also took the time to paint my caliper brackets and front 4 pots the same color, as well as the centers of the rotors)

9. Install the new rotor and caliper bracket (not pictured) using the 2 14mm bolts.

10. Grease your pads, and install in the clips. Use a C-clamp to compress the caliper piston, and install caliper using it's 2 14mm bolts

11. Reinstall your (not hideously bright) wheel. Remove jackstand, torque lugnuts, remove jack.

12. Repeat 1-11 for the other side of the car.

13. Enjoy your new brakes! (or do your front's or whatever...)
