I am a newbie at all this stuff. How do I paint my breaks? I have a 1998 altima and it looks like drums in the back disc in the front? Standard spray paint? My car is the beige/champagne any Ideas on a good color?

Don't use regular spray paint because of the heat. Use caliper paint if you wanna pay for it, but I know a lot of people who use engine paint as well; it's cheaper. As for a good color, I can't think of any really good schemes, but a lot of brake upgrades and a lot of people may just go for red. It's up to you. Search and see if anyone else has done it.

engine paint is great. does wonders but eventually, it will need touching up. i'd say, u will have to respray them at least once every 6-7 months.

Stillen is right. But the touching up isn't too big of a deal, and the Caliper paint costs a lot more than typical engine paint.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that. That really helps with looks and life of the paint job.

Yeah I put old towels over my rotors, and left the brake lines connected, and just painted against the towel, so I didn't get paint on the rotor or the wheel well.
