I'd try the paint to match and see how it looks, if you don't like it you blast it and polish it.

I my opinion, polishing the calipers would look bad with everything you have going on. You have teal paint with dark charcoal wheels and then just randomly have a polished caliper? Just seems like it would clash, especially if you paint the bracket teal.

I told him not to worry about getting the rest off because they'll be sandblasted before powdercoating anyways!

Did you take the calipers apart yourself or are they doing it? When I mean apart I mean the pistons and seals.

Yes sir! lol here ya god, I made another thread about it in the how to section:

1. Remove caliper from car

2. Place something in the caliper opening to stop the pistons from becoming a projectile. Here I used an old piece of thick rubber hose.

3. Using an air compressor and rubber nipple, insert the nipple into the opening where the brake line connects to and hit it with air until one of the pistons pop out. (see vid)

4. Here you can see I replaced the rubber hose with a roll of tape. This was to keep the seal on the upper piston so that the lower piston will also dislodge.

5. Hold the air into until both pistons pop out an equal length.

6. Replace the rubber hose again once both pistons are dislodged an equal amount on the tape roll.

7. Hit the caliper again with the compressed air so that they will dislodge fully.

8. Remove pistons and pull out seals.

It would be nice to know how to do. I had both of my rears over extend and the calipers wouldn't go back in bent 2 c-clamps trying to get them back in.
There is a tool you can rent from the local auto parts store that represses the pistons back in for the rears.
