It was awhile ago, but I'm pretty sure the G2 kit comes with brake cleaner..

For sanding I used a couple sand sponges. May not be the best way, but gave me pretty good results.

I just bought the
Silver G2 kit Silver G2 kit
. Car is black so I didn't want to do anything too "flashy" with red or orange, but rather a OE+ look like the Mercedes AMG's have their calipers. Also going to be installing new http://brakeperformance.com from BP .

As someone else mentioned, how has this held up to brake cleaner/solution?

Only been driving for a few weeks with them. Seems like they stop much better with LUK Schaffer Brake Pads pads than my OEM rotors and much less vibration when braking at freeway speeds.
