    Trying to get a few simple jobs done & this one bugs me everytime I look at the car. Rusty brake drums, thinking of painting them black. Will wire brush them then I guess use some sort of rust inhibitor, For the best finish is it best to spray them which will mean removing them from the car or can they be hand painted while on the car? I cant find anything other than hammerite in a tin (plenty of spray options) which is an all in one inhibitor, primer & topcoat but dont think it is high temp paint? Which I guess I need? Just after advice or ideas really from those who have tackled this before

    wire brush it and then use hammerite ive used it on a couple of cars and its lasted well, rather than using a stroke technique id suggest a sort of stippling motion for the best look!!

    heres some pics of mine........

    On my last motor I did these, obviously on my new motor I have discs all round so this wasnt an option but I have done my calipers.

    I would personally make sure you get a decent wire brush (some are awful), with a semi circular grip handle as the normal handled ones cane your hands if you put a lot of pressure on

    Whack the hammerite on there until you get a smooth finish (slowly...bit by bit)...allowing for dripping until finally smoothing it over.

    Wait until it is all set....some people lacquer at this point but I dont see the need...

    Good job, easy and quick and definitely has results.

    Dont forget a dust mask!
