Hello Everyone,

I'm brand new here. May 7th, I purchased a 2005 645cic. It is a beautiful car. Only problem is that the brake calipers have surface rust on them :thumbdwn:. Can anyone give me any advice on how to remove the rust and keep it from comming back?

I think you mean "rotors", not "calipers"....rotors are raw cast iron/steel, and will rust after washing the car, rain, driving through a puddle, etc. This is NOT considered abnormal in any way. If it bothers you that much, pull `em off, and spend the entire day masking them off and painting them (except for the pad contact area) with VHT paint.

Thanks Fast Bob, but I mean calipers not rotors. I know that it sounds funny but it is the calipers. I currently have the 118 factory wheels. I just ordered the Star Spoke 128 19" wheels and I know that the rust will look terrible.

pull the calipers off and and use a rotating wire brush with compressed air or sandblasting
