My car NEVER sees gravel, ever. I won't drive it on that crap anymore lol.
I havent even had to use the wipers in over two months, nor has it seen an actual water wash in a few months, california duster only....got the instant detailer today...
I used Tire shine in the wheel wells...it holds up pretty good..
Spare time? Yup, im single.

I guess if you're bored, then go right ahead! You might as well have painted your calipers if you were gonna do that much extensive cleaning. Lookin good

Probably not worth painting calipers unless you're running ceramic pads. That'* when I did mine. They stay the proper color that way.

Lookin' good Matt! One of these days try some rubber undercoating in the wheelwells. It freshens 'em up very nice.
