the rear end was completely FUBAR , hence the powder coat ..........

started off with a red undercoat , then rubbed it down flush , recoated , then rubbed down again , for a good base layer

then final coat of the "close enough red" gloss , blended in with the original red

came out pretty good , i`d say
