    Still have some beefy sway bars and the rear disc kit coming in

    Now to find time in the next few weeks to drop in the motor and start putting the stuff on..def think I will need to either coat those spindles or paint them. They are cast right now with no coating.

    I wouldnt leave the the spindles bare steel....even with FLUID FILM your going
    to be fighting Rust !!!!!!!!!
    I Epoxy Primed (2K) mine with SPI (Southern Polyurethane) Black
    and then used aerosol "CAST BLAST" for that OE cast "LOOK"
    I'd do the same thing with Rotor Area that is not the brake pad contact surface

    Use CHEAP Aerosol Primer on Unclean cast parts you'll get poor
    adhesion and quick failure.

    I would use the caliper paint with ceramic. Dries quick and doesn’t flake with heat

    I had used Duplicolor wheel paint 10 yrs ago on the Brembos on my Charger, still holding up.
