Calliper holder - wire brush and paint them
Brake discs - looks like you could do with some new ones.

As above. Wire brush, paint on the calipers.

Replace the discs, or paint the hubs in the sane way as calipers.

I used silver hammerite brushed on my brake disk hubs. A year later they still look good. Have a lookon ebay for caliper paint - any colour you like!

I'm considering doing my GT's calipers but have a summer of building sheds lined up so they may have to wait.

That said, I done my first GTV's calipers in red Smoothrite finished off with some decals from eBay (Ubernine?) which still looked like new when I sold it 3 years later.
