E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
Hey guys, I am going home today and wanted to start a new project on my car.
Here's what I want to do: I want to paint the brake rotors the color of my calipers. Not the whole rotor, just the part that is now rusty. The hub part is rusty and so is the outside rim. It looks really shitty. And I hear that nice cars have the rotors painted so they don't rust.
This is what it used to look like.
Here's a couple shots of the rusty hub and outer rim. Keep in mind that I will not be painting the actual braking surface, but it's rusty too (I haven't driven it in 6 days).
The arrows point to the part I want to paint.
Oh, and this is my clock, but my current rotors should be painted like this:
What do you think? Yay or nay?

I bought the Zimmerman cross drilled rotors for my 5, and they looked like they were zinc coated on the hub, but the first rain fall they got all rusty. That was a piss off. I had to take all 4 off and clean them up and paint them, I did mine the same color as my rims though, I have the M parallels, and the way the sit on the disk, it almost looks like one solid piece. Very cool.
