The paint can with brushes are actually easier to use.

One can should do the trick.

I sprayed all 4 my brakes 5 coats each and still have some left in the can. Also look at spraying a clear gloss coat, it helps with keeping them clean.

I used newspaper to cover the discs, shocks etc. The duplicolour spray is a fine mist and easily gets in everywhere. Takes about 5 minutes per wheel to cover everything up nicely.
