Yes. You can use it one drums and all you need is some brake cleaner and a steel bristle brush to remove rust and hard brake dust. I have that same kit, but haven't used it yet..

I give my calipers and drums a coat of Krylon enamel twice a year. Brakes don't get all that hot unless you're really on them.

If yours are really dirty like mine (removed old paint) were you can use carb/choke cleaner on them or any other brand of brake dust cleaner.

It's best to clean them first with a wire wheel in an electric drill. That will take a lot more junk off than try to clean it with a hand brush. Then spray them down with brake cleaner to get all the dust, oil, and whatever else off so that the paint will stick. Also consider getting one of these http://www.g2usa.com/. Lasts much longer and easier to apply than spray paint. ;)

I've often wondered if those actually worked on our cars Aaron.

Whats that, the G2 caliper paint? Yeah, it's the best stuff I've tried. I've used it on 5 different cars now.
