My rear brake hubs look rusty. Has anyone painted their's? Should rustoleum do the trick, or heat paint for this application? I'm going to remove the hubs and epoxy primer them I think, then paint.... Any suggestions??

if you are going to paint the drums, i would reccomend a high temp paint. engine enamel is what most people use. i'm not sure about this, but i have heard people put the drum (or caliper if you have discs) in the grill/oven to cure the paint quickly, someone double check this for me.

There is an actual brake component paint you can use. Pep Boys, Autozone, etc. all carry it. I would get a drill with a heavy-gauge wire wheel and clean the drums off first before you paint them. I think the heat from braking actually cures the paint.
