Default rusty rotors

I had these rusty old F2 rotors in my basement. And I do mean rust. They were completely brown. I've never seen a bike rotor rust like that before. I should have taken a before pic.


So I bead blasted them, soak them for a day in rust restore and hit them with some 1200F satin silver paint. Here's the result. Almost good enough to use.

Nicely done, Phil. At first I thought "painting the rotors seems like a bad idea" but when I see what part you painted, I get the urge to do it myself.

I did overspray just a bit. The outside edge of the paint is a bit ragged. But I figure the brake pads will quickly wear any overspray off very quickly and give me a nice rounds painted area.
