Lets see, machined bare metal, a trans Atlantic ocean voyage in a ship....
actually you can and should expect rust on lightly painted and unprotected metal parts, it's a fact of life.[:(] The paint on the hubs is only to protect the hubs while in storage, on a shelf somewhere.[:(!]
If you want to repaint these parts, they have to come off, be cleaned and painted with high temperature paint. (Engine block paint works fine.)[:p]
