Hell no you shouldn't! What you should do is a rear disc conversion.

I don't think you should paint them either.

Painted calipers bring in a subtle hint of color and add to the detail.
Painting the rear drums will have the complete opposite effect I'm afraid.

Leave 'em alone or paint them black...your car looks good the way it is.

If I were you, with that car, I'd probably paint them black, then repaint the front calipers black too...just wondering about why you wanted red calipers on a completely blacked out ride.

...and pop in the Rolling Stones while you're at it.

painting drum brakes is like chroming a catalytic converter and showing it off

Dont do it!

Painted drums other than black is just plain Rice

dont paint them but i do think you should take the splash guards off and get the type r badges, that would add subtle color to the blackness
