Rusty Windshield brackets / Faded fender flares

I was tired of my (very) rusty windshield brackets, and decided I wanted to paint them. From what I read on JF, its easy to break the nuts off the backside when removing the windshield brackets, so I decided to leave them on and paint them.

I started by removing the large rust flakes with a screwdriver, followed by a wire brush. Then I sanded them, preped the Jeep for painting. I did three coats of Rustoleum primer, then 5 coats of black.

Also, between coats of paint, I used a heat gun on those tired old fender flares I have. Great results.

I regret not getting some bondo, but I'm a poor college kid with little in the way of tools. Heres the results:
