    What paint could I use on brake discs?

    i used silver High temp paint from halfords on the focus, mask as much of the disc as you can/be bothered to, when dry go up the road and touch the brakes and all the excess will come off leaving a nice edge lol

    maybe the standard issue of the connections/earths for the rear lights? when indicating the car may think you're illuminating the brake light and cancelling the cruise?
