Later I masked the rotor with the high temp tape that came with the kit. Then sprayed the powder on and put it in the oven. Picture 3 shows the results.

I decided to use the Powder Coat gun I got for Christmas a couple of years ago from my wife. Picture 1 show's what I started with. I wire brushed the spindle and caliper bracket to remove the surface rust and cleaned it with lacquer thinner. I sprayed the powder on and let bake for 20 minutes in the oven at 400°. Picture 3 shows the parts back on the car.

Here are pictures with the tank straps in. I'll trim the sharp edges and make it look a little better.

Because of the odd shape of the rear crossmember, I had to use some rectangle tubing and cut it to fit in the crossmember. Once I welded these in the tank brackets I made could sit flush with the crossmember.
