Jon, why did you paint the aluminum hats? They clean up nice with scotchbrite pads.
I used the Griots cast iron color. Had the rotors bead blasted. Still a pain in the ass to paint. Three coats using Q tips etc.
It doesn't last. The rust starts coming though. Becomes an annual thing.
You also have to paint the ID on the disc surface. 1/4 inch on the back and 1/8 inch in the front in my case. OD, 1/8 inch.
Looking into powder coating the rears and cad plating the fronts.
A masking nightmare, just like doing the wheels.
