It really is an easy thing to do. Dont sweat it. Clean the calipers with the cleaner that is in the kit wipe down them mask off what you dont want paint on and paint do all four then add another coat ( when I was finished with the forth one I started on the second coat) Let them cure/dry for 2 hours I waited 1.5 because it was so dang hot and put your wheels back on The kit says not to drive for 24 hrs I waited about 18 hrs again because of th heat here. here is a picture of the whole truck but you cant see the rears

If you have a second person around that can help you later pull the calipers off and clean the heck out of them (also lets you paint the back of the pads if you want) then throw em back on and have someone help you bleed the brakes. Gets some fresh fluid in there as well
