Brake caliper refurbishment.

Evening All
Not sure if this is the right section but, I could do with having my brake calipers refurbished and painted.
I'm not sure it's something I want to do myself, so I'm after any suggestions and recommendations?

thanks.

Do you want them removing and powder coating, or painting whilst on the car?

All off, new seals, pistons etc, painted
I also need to replace some rusted brake lines so thought it would be an idea time.

I got my seal kit from them for my Metro Gti calipers and refurbed them myself but as they are cast iron and the car wasn't used they could be sat in a vinegar bath for ages! (Never do this with alloy!)

They do full calipers on an exchange basis too but recall it was mainly silver, gold, black or red?
