Looks like all you need, fo shizzy.

I'd recommend removing the calipers, CLEAN THEM, then clean with some mineral spirits. Lightly sand the surfaces to paint. Be careful not to get the paint on the pistons or the seals for the pistons.

The only thing you'll need to get is the "PORSCHE" labels to stick on when they're dry!

Hi, I used red engine paint with clear coat ,It's been 3 years now and no chipping.
Just make sure you completely clean the brake calipers with a good degreaser, then 3 light coats of paint , stick on the Porsche labels of your choice and 2 - 3 coats of clear and you are done. Use a garbage bag and cut out a opening enough to pass the caliper through, cover car so that no paint residue gets to it.

Simple and fast, good luck
