That depends on how good you want them to look and how long that look will last.
I rebuilt mine, just std ones, beadblasted them, painted them, baked them in the oven, and rekitted them, installed them.
I also did the rotors too, they were new ones.

I used that VHT high temp stuff. it lasted about 30 mins. cause when i bleed the brakes after i assembled them the bleed hose came off and covered one of the calipers in brake fluid. EXCELLENT paint striper :evil:

otherwise they rest are all good.
Cheers,
Jason.

I have a small beadblasting cabinet at home. I got it for $250, then there's glass beads, about $75 for a 20kg bag, and you need a compressor of about 15 CFM minimum, and run 90psi through it.
