What is the best way to remove the rust & improve the finish. Also need new black Mercedes Benz marked covers as mine have lost all paint! 2016 SLK250D

Several vids on utube on how to restore calipers, both off and in situ.
Off gives best results.
Heat resistant decals are available to restore that MB look.

There are also brake caliper covers for sale.
You have to be careful to get the correct ones though.

I think either Pete or Davie tried these. But on a 171.

Think it was Pete. I painted my rear's red about 5 years ago. Wire brush, emery cloth, etc., then sealer/primer and 3 coats top coat. They need doing again 😢

Please no caliper cover... just doesn't look good especially on an SLK. Like Davie (@DAVIETHESCAFF) said... paint them with the wheels off (paint brush or spray). Can be a DIY... lots of helpful info on this forum regarding this, so do a search. I had mine spray painted about 3 years ago... Cost $600. but well worth it...
