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!
