Default Rusting Rotors Solution..........

Here is what my front rotors look like.......rust galore!
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0950.jpg">


Into a plastic pan to remove the rust:

I ran across this stuff from a Google search. Non-toxic, biodegrable, earth friendly,
Evapo-rust. I bought 2 gallons at a local gun shop. He raved about the stuff. He does all his guns in it:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0952.jpg">


The hubs had some rust on them so, 000 Steel Wool, cleaned with alcohol to remove any residue,
studs taped off ready to paint(Dupli-Color High Heat 1200 degree flat black spray paint):
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0953.jpg">


Rusty rotors submerged in the Evapo-Rust solution:

Rust all gone after just 1 hour. Rinsed with water and then air dried over night:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0955.jpg">



Hubs all painted:

Rear rotors are just as rusty:

Nickel Anti-Seize:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0960.jpg">


Putting Nickel Anti-Seize inside the rotor before I put it on the hub will prevent it from rusting to the hub, which just occurred on this forum by JXR on his 8-10-2006 post:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0961.jpg">



Anti-Seize goes on the back of each pad:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0962.jpg">


Front re-assembled:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0963.jpg">


Rear rotor rust removed and painted:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0964.jpg">


Rear rotor re-assembled:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0966.jpg">


Wheel back on and no rust visible through the spokes of the wheel:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/81050/img_0967.jpg">

I did this over a 3 day period. I am glad to get rid of the rust. Here is the link to Evapo-Rust.<ul><li><a href="http://www.evapo-rust.com/index.php">http://www.evapo-rust.com/index.php</a</li></ul>

Default FYI: according to the evapo-rust site, they NOW carry this stuff at autozones nationwide

i will be getting it tomorrow. did you clean the stuff first to get the brake dust off or did you just dump it in?

Default I called 3 or 4 of my local Auto Zones and they told me........

they did not carry it nor could they get it.
I finally bought it at a local gun dealer, who by the way loves this stuff.
I even talked to the President of Evapo-rust and told him about my trying to buy the gallon size at Auto Zone.

Default I just dumped the rotor in a pan of Evapo-rust and let it work.

Took about 1 hour.
I did wash it off after taking it out of the solution.
