Hi Everyone,<p>So I was getting tired of looking at my rusty hubs that were flat out pathetic. So, I went to the auto store, picked up a spray can of Krylon Ultimate Rust Preventor Enamel paint in Alumn. Bagged off the car and jacked it up....here are the results (I only did the passenger side today)...Next time I will have to cover up more of the rotor surface as it wasn't as easy to flake off as some of mentioned <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes011.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/IMAG0111.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/IMAG0112.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/IMAG0113.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/IMAG0114.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes009.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes006.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes001.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes002.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes003.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b298/puredrive07/Brakes004.jpg" BORDER="0">

I did a few high speed stops and it was basically all off the rotors....there was a little build up around the pads. So I waited to wash the wheels down and it all came off.

Re: Painted My Rusty Hubs! (PureDrive07)

What a coincidence, I did the same thing to my rotors this weekend. I only did half the car too. Next weekend I will do the other two.

Re: Painted My Rusty Hubs! (PureDrive07)

Looks great, I highly reccomend this. Removing rotors is probably easier though (if I can do it, you can).<p><IMG SRC="http://img184.imageshack.us/img184/3418/1006283smalluq8.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/2974/1006303smallea5.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img264.imageshack.us/img264/3550/1006312smallki1.jpg" BORDER="0">

Kelly, what does it take to get the rotors off?

Re: (SHIFT_S60R)

How much did you pay to have the mudguards painted? I've bought them for my Sonic Blue and I must say they look a lot better than the standard black finish.

One pointer, you want to have a hangar or something as well to hang the calipers on when you remove them from discs.<p>Posting from Kingman, AZ tonight, visiting the Grand Canyon tomorrow with the family, then Flagstaff tomorrow night, Las Cruces on Wed, and we pull into San Antonio on Thursday.
