Most people won't pay this much but I used the

G2 RED Brake Caliper Paint kit
comes with brush, expoxy like paint, brake cleaner, decal

The thing I like about it is that it stays shiny thumbsup had it on for 3years now and still looks the same since the day I put it on

runs about $30++

I used the Foliatec (basically the same as G2 I think) paint system and have had no problems at all. They still look bright and clean after 4 months; including driving on salted roads after some spring snow. There's a pic in my profile. I don't suggest yellow for a blue car though.

I plan to use G2, everyone who has used it absolutely RAVES about the results. $40 is not that much for a mod so easy to do.

they came out really good. me and my friend jeff used red brake caliper paint from pepboys (about $5) and a couple of jack stands...it's very easy, but very time consuming. we also found out it's better to use a garage because we had a light rain come out of nowhere (his calipers were painted black) thumbsup

the celica gt comes with drums..since you have a gts you have a REAL caliper (although a much smaller one than in the front) which you painted.

but anyway, yes you can paint the rear drums in a celica gt...the 'exterior' part won't rub off thumbsup

^^ yeah.

front brakes have to put up with a lot more stress than the rear brakes..therefore the front calipers on cars are virtually always bigger than the rear calipers thumbsup
