check it out painted my calipers:toung: did part of the really rusty rotors it might look silly but I hope stops the horrible rusty look, I really hate to see other cars with expensive tires/wheels and the rotors are horrible rusted so I worked them a little and painted them and the color it's going to be hiding anyways so there you go...oh I even painted one of the engine mount!!! it was that or paint my drums which it's not tasteful in my opinion or throw away the rest of the paint...:nuts:

next time you're ready to do brakes, have the rotors powdercoated. the whole thing. Pad wears away where it touches, every other surface has an excellent corrosion free, chip resistant coating.

thanks for the time I just did this to use the caliper kit wife bought about 2 years ago and I was afraid would get dry anyways good to know:cheesy: because by the time I get wheels I'm going to get drilled slotted rotors they are made of zinc or some kind of material it's not supposed to rust. but not sure if thy live up to their expectations does anyone have any experience about those???

Nice. looks better than rust that's for sure.

I thought about doing this with my rotors but meh, just the calipers (and my drums) powder coated is good enough for me.

I actually love the looks of you drums brian I kind of did the same thing but used regular paint and didn't sand blast them just wet sand them and got rid of most of the rust they look good enough to me but I wish would have done the same to mine...
