So i decided to tackle a little project i had been meaning to do for a long time. its nothing much but i thought id share....


my zimmermann rotors in the rear had their hats get rusty. it looked nasty.
so i pulled them off

looks good, should of done the calipers and carriers while you were in there.......

i did mine with the rings logo on it. came out great. (i know i need at least a TT upgrade)

Thats a good idea, I hope the paint holds up nice. I always hated when that part of the rotor gets rusty.

its supposed to withstant 800F constand and spikes of 1200. i think it will be ok.

Sweet, I just bought some drilled rotors last week. Waiting for the temp to go above 20* F here in Michigan so I can install them.
