You a high temp paint. Try to get as much rust off as possible then use a good self etch primer and a whatever color high temp paint you want. They make special caliper paint to withstand the extreme temps of brakes. The rear drums don't get that hot though. You might be able to get away with using a good engine paint.

Take them off,
sand them down really good
get some high temp primer/paint
go to town
profit!

I've seen people paint the drum while it is still on. You can do this, but I'm not a fan of over spary all over my truck and to me its not that hard to get the drum off/on.

Remember, a good paint job is only as good as the preparation that was done to it. Take your time and it will come out good.


EDIT: Engine Paint will work just fine on the drums.
