a different color rust

2008 March 11 00:43

I'm going to try a different type of rust treatment this time:

So I took the other rear (rusty) brake drum

and painted it

The important thing here is that even though I was very careful to paint the inside of the lug bolt holes, you can see the lug bolt still threads into the drum. I think that means that I can paint the brake plates without having to worry that it's going to mess up the fit of any of the parts.
