When I painted mine with Folia-Tec (which is by the way the mack daddy caliper paint) I just used some common sense. I didn't paint the bleeder thingy. It's the little bolt looking thing that has a hole in the middle of it. I think an 8mm wrench will fit around it so you can get an idea of its size. I didn't paint any rubber parts or anything like that. I didn't spend too much time on the back of the calipers because you will never ever see that part.

Drop me a line if you have any specific questions.
