how'd it get this way? Through track use or use of the cheap brake cleaners?

I say just leave it be. I come from a community that loved to repaint our red Brembos (on the Evo 8/9). It's hell of a lot of work, and over time they will fade again.

Don't forget these steps:

1. sand down the finish with ultra-fine sand paper
2. reclear after painting if you want the gloss look.

AS with logos, it's hard but I would tape over it.

But for others who are buying after market calipers, they will fade over time, especially the entry level glossy colored ones. No matter what brand, they will peel and fade. And absoulately do not clean them with anything other than water...
