    Caliper repaint... options please

    Im sorry if this has been covered many times over...
    My car has the Brembo front brake set up but the paint and laquer is flaking and faded...
    I would like them re painted/coated
    The car is blue so i concidered doing them blue ? grey , yellow or just the same red.
    Thing is... i want the brembo logo on again so im guessing laquer needs to be aplied again after painting and the sticker fitted?
    Or is it just better to take them to a powder coaters and then have them rebuilt?

    Im told any paint in a spray can will just rot and lift over time because wheel cleaners contain chemicals that will disolve the cellusos paint... Is this the case?

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?
