I think this all depends on how good a job you want. My son and his mates used to paint them whist on the car, Saxo's so enough said, but they looked OK as long as you didn't look too closely. Would it be easier to just buy some coloured callipers and get them fitted?

There is the option of caliper covers that stick on and save faffing about with paint-

IMHO you dont need to take off discs and calipers as long as you take your time 

just a good clean and make sure they are bone dry before painting(used a hairdryer) dont tell the mrs

mask up areas you dont want paint on i did a wheel at a time and got a good result
