Painting the Drum Brakes for the Second Time

The first time I painted the drums I did not know what I was doing so it is actually a surprise that they have lasted this long.

Drum Brake - Sand Blasted / Zinc Primed
Drum Brake - Sand Blasted and Grinded
Both drums had been sand blasted some time ago, the one on the left is what they looked like before I started working on them. The drum on the right has had zinc primer applied. Before zinc primer was applied I grinded the drums to get off all the surface rust then cleaned them with cellulose thinner.

When the primer was dry enough to apply paint, the drums were painted with enamel flat black paint. Mounted drum brake with wheel spacer.
