Painting the rotors....

hey guys sup... so recently i bought some brembo blank rear-rotors.... some of might know that these rotors rust so easily because it has no anti-rust agents....

ok so now i got the front-rotors and they're not installed yet...

I just want to know if it's safe to paint the rotors with the G2 caliper paint... G2 paint can handle up to 950 degrees i think...

I was thinking of doing this because the rust just looks awful... of course i wouldn't paint the whole rotor... but you know what i mean

you dont want to paint the rotors....its fine to paint the calipers....but not the rotors...would probably cause slippage not to mention it would probably cause some problems for the pads.

HAHAHA...oh

yea, thats fine...Ive heard of a lot of people painting with a high temp flat black...yeah there shouldnt be a prblem, but after a while if you take your rim off, the rim may adhesive itself to the paint, and the paint would stick to the back of the rim..thats the only possibleproblem i could think of..no mechanical probs though

I get what you are saying and the answer is yes you can and yes you should. I did it on my preludes rotors years ago and it worked fine. Lightly sand the surface that is to be painted with a fine sand paper and then use a couple of coats. Alow them plenty of time to dry before you put the wheels back on. I had to replace the front rotors on my car recently and I am getting the rust run-off water onto the chrome rims and it looks like s**t. Post up some pics so others may know what you are trying to do visualy. If I get a chance maybe I will write up a DIY of some sort. No promises though I have a four day old newborn baby to tend to.

I painted my rotors today and I changed the color of my calipers. This is not a diy because it really needs no explaining. Just remove the rotors. Sand the rusted areas around the hat and the rim of the rotor to remove the rust. Then spray and wipe it with a brake cleaning spray. Then pain it.

Try and clean off excess paint off of the rotor surface as much as possible. If there is a little remaining it is okay because it will be removed by the pads and rotor contact when you drive the car the next time. Then reinstall your rotor and calipers.

This is a before and after shot of my work from today. I painted the rotors because I kept getting rust water spots on the rims after they got wet. This should take care of most of it. Before[IMG][/IMG] After[IMG][/IMG]
Now the finished product.[IMG][/IMG]
