Disc brake dust shield - all small parts I blast with fine crushed glass and then treat with POR 15 paint and it comes out very nice, almost as nice as powder coat and pretty durable!

I used a oscillating scraper I purchased at Harbor freight for $20 to scrape the undercoating off of my C and I crawled around under it. I wish I would've built a rollover jig like you did!

Hey Kenneth...I can't claim being smart or original! Idea came from this site - Steve Lyle I think is the guy who I copied (kind of) but yes I did not feel like laying on my back to do it or even up on my lift overhead! Thanks for the comment! How is your C coming along?Mike
