Default Best way to paint calipers?

Best kind of paint?
Do I have to completely de-rust them? How?
Should I wait until my next brake-job to do this?

Just out of curiousity, why? What happened with your sprayed version? (Chipped, finish...)

I'm also in Minnesota, an was just noticing that after 2 winters, I'm very pleased with the durability or the VHT Brake paint. (Not engine paint)

No far, knock on wood, no chips or loss of gloss.
