[DML] Re: Brake Rotors



I'm not sure which vendors might have all of them.

I did the brakes recently myself.  I wanted to turn them and was also 
considering buying new ones, as the glaze on mine was so bad, I 
could've used them as bathroom mirrors!

However, David Teitelbaum, suggested just sanding them with #80 grit 
sandpaper on a rotary drill attachment, just to break the glazed 
surface.  Since I could only get two of the rotors off the car, I was 
easily able to sand them while on the car, making random circle 
patterns uniformly over the surface.  Worked like a charm, and saved 
me a few hundred dollars.  It removed the glaze, and gave me a very 
nice uniform "matte" surface.  There were no deep gauges or grooves 
(which might warrant turning or new rotors). 

My new brakes and sanded rotors work excellent.  Not a squeak to be 
heard.

Good luck,

Paul
