Silly question but asking because I need to make a decision here. I have some Por 15 and was wanting to paint my braking plates before I assemble my rear axle assembly. The Por 15 is super thick and vendors seem to not want to ship thinners to my area Due to restrictions. And, I don’t want the paint gumming up and causing Mechanical sliding issues if for some reason the paint don’t cure good. Or just make them a mess Incase I have some brushing problems with drying If you will. I imagine brake plates like most other new auto part manufacturing processes anti corrosion “plate” This type thing. 1. These things are plated correct? And is anybody finding rust on these things that doesn’t come off and clean up-like did factory do a good job plating these things? I’m in California. I’m kind of wanting to skip painting these things. Any question is a good question?😊 Thanks again.
