don't paint the rear if there isn't a caliper. it will just highlight the fact that you dont have 4 wheel disc brakes

you could paint them though, but just black to protect them, they might be rusted or just off color... im planing on painting my calipers red, and painting my drums black just to keep them "looking" new, though they are totoaly old... and rusted looking

only do it if you have 4 discs. or if you have upgraded front discs then just paint the drums black.

I completely disagree. I painted mine black, front and rear, even though I have a GT with only front discs.

It's a lot better looking than the rusty, dirty stock look, especially if you have aftermarket rims.

Here's what they look like now:
