I got the premium rotors from Rotorpros or whatever they are, they are a few bucks more and I got black PC, more like black painted to me but for 250, we'll see how they feel/hold up. I got them dimpled/slotted and I painting them myself with Rustoleum high temp paint...

all cell phone pics...been working my ass off at work and had to paint them QUICK as I need these things on BAD, so I was pressed for time....first coat was sloppy and THIN, second coat was thin too but enough to make it all even. Just two light coats to stop the rust, they will be installed Friday evening after work...PM me if you have any questions for me.

Right out of the box...(on my desk at work - lol)



Front AND Rear pads....





All four Rotors after first coat of paint....










AND this weekend I was in upstate NY and got to piss in a keg....



AND to finish off my post...



goodnight all. :cheers1:

I use a c-clamp to compress the pistons of the calipers. Other than that, wrenchs and elbow grease. Might want a buffer between the pads and c-clamp if they aren't worn though (I'll be keeping mine since I'm not out of brake pad yet.)

Post up the after install pics.

I'm surprised that you even painted the brake surface too. Wouldn't that affect your braking or create noise? I was thinking about painting the rotors too except for the brake surface.

a buncha guys on here paint the whole rotor, the rotors that come PC'ed will still have rust, like the inner ring around the PC where the pad doesn't quite make contact. So if you paint the whole thing, one stop or a few stops should wear off the paint only where the pad contacts and you should stay rust free...

here are R1 rotors painted...
