Maybe I'm missing something here.

How do you keep the paint on the rotor once you apply the brakes?

Doesn't the paint cause poor braking performance? (Paint has lower friction coefficient)

Is it April 1st?

If you have found some way of making this permanent, let us know, it would be interesting.

MJM,

I think it's the inner portion, not the brake surface.

To much red for 2k.

Thanks Frank, I'll upload some more pics when I get time.

I couldn,t stand the rust when I had to remove the "hubcaps" for AutoX. I used 1200 degree paint from AutoZone. I also put a very light coat on the hub surface to reduce the electrolytic corrosion between the aluminum wheels and steel hub surface. Hopefully this will also insulate the wheel bearings and spindel somewhat from heat transfer. I also had the rotors cryoed and have an extra set ready to go. So far no stress or heat cracking.

I masked the rotor surface during application, BTW.
