Correct way to paint this?

I'm working on reviving a ford 8.8" rear axle assembly from its rusty junkyard grave and I have got the brake mounting brackets cleaned up using the electrolysis method. When I paint these brackets, can I paint the whole thing or do I need to leave the mounting surface bare metal? Do I need to reinstall them before painting and then paint the whole assembly at once? Also what is the best way to prep the metal before paint? I'll be using Rust-oleum primer/paint in a spray can, they recommend soap/water prep, is that sufficient? Thanks!

Things like that i generaly never paint the mounting surfaces...

Just either grease or neverseize a VERY thin coat on the mounting surfaces carfefully not to get it on any other part of it,bolt it on the axle and paint away

Ironworker is abolutely right. Having anything between two mating surfaces not originaly installed will jeopardize torque integrity on your bolts not to mention any offsets like shimming between parts. If I did paint over a surface I would definitely sand the surfaces back to metal before reinstalling.
