Mounting(welding) brake hardware

I am going to be getting hydraulic brakes for my 29er soon, and John Childs has advised me thus far to do this:

Unicycle.com sells the needed brake mount hardware:

You'll need to get the mounting hardware welded or brazed to the frame. You'll first need to strip the chrome away from the area where the brake mounts will be welded. Then after they're welded on you'll need to paint over that part of the frame to keep the frame from rusting.
My questions are:
1.) Where are some common places that could weld or braze the hardware onto my frame? John said that darren bedford could do it if i sent the frame, but I do not want to pay a lot for the shipping/new paint job, etc.
2.) What kind of paint is the best to use, I dont really care how the frame looks, i just care about preventing rusting, so I wouldnt mind just painting over the stripped chrome.
3.) What is the best way to line up the mounting hardware with the rim, so that whoever is welding it onto my frame does not put it in the wrong place.

Save yourself the hassle and send it to Darren. That way you know you're getting a professional job and a sharp looking uni.
