I'd strongly suggest using 400 grit sandpaper after a through degreasing, instead of a wire brush.
With regards to caliper removal- Porsche says you must replace the bolts with new ones ( there is a newer version that is triple-square instead of allen-head!) once they're removed and a torque wrench should be used to retighten (approx. 80lbs.). Also, if the previous person over-tightened them then they may strip the threads in the HUB as you unscrew them ( because it's aluminum) and then you'll need to install a threaded insert.
Death is certain, life is not.
