Remove wheel, obviously, and then mask off all but the caliper. That is the pain as it takes a while. Get rid of that surface rust with a wire bonnet brush on a power drill. Be careful. Treat with a rust curer if required. Undercoat and apply a top coat of red caliper paint. Some caliper paints don't require undercoat. You can also buy JAGUAR white logos off ebay to finish them off and I would suggest a sealant spray over them. there is a post recently, somewhere on here, that shows the end result.

I used the smooth Hammerite in silver on my previous 240 and added some red Jaguar logos from eBay. I was really pleased with the result.
