Umm...sorry if I missed your point but have you ever owned a car with disc brakes before? They'll "rust" if you even stare at it. It comes off by pressing the brakes when driving.FIJIROB said:Anyone have advice on how to prevent rust on the stock Si brake rotors? Mine were rusty from the dealer at 22 miles - and are still rusty. They look horrible.
First car I've owned that I can see the brakes while looking at it from the side...dextor said:Umm...sorry if I missed your point but have you ever owned a car with disc brakes before? They'll "rust" if you even stare at it. It comes off by pressing the brakes when driving.
I guess I should have been more specific - I really meant the brake rotor rim rust. I'm in Florida - near the Ocean - so I probably see it more than most. Good to know it's universal...dextor said:Humid whether can contribute to rusty looking rotors, if you use your car everyday or every second day that shouldn't be a problem. Mine will look rusty after I wash it (i.e. if I get any water on it). I doubt Honda used a different rotor just on your car, so it's not the material. Everyone else has the same rotor material. The rust on the rim is universal, nothing you can do about it.
But my point is using your brakes it the best way to make it look nice and shiny.
His car has probrably been sitting on the dealer lot for a few months and the rotors prob have a nice layer of rust on them. Couple that with brake pads that are not broken in and you get rust that takes a while to go away.TJ213 said:I'm still confused about what rust you're talking about, could you take a picture and circle the rust you want to get rid of?
