Good evening BITOG faithful
So, I ordered rear rotors and pads for the camry of mine. Question I have and pardon my ignorance here but should I clean that grayish paint off the rotor or does it aid in bedding in the pads and rotors?
Thank for advice and info in advance
Happy Friday also
I know others have already answered this and you've got your answer.. But I thought I'd tell you my experience with this type of coating. I have the Bosch Quietcast with this exact rust preventative paint, it does wear off after like 50 braking miles or around there. It comes off quite quickly but what's awesome about it is it protects against rust on the parts the pads doesn't touch. It doesn't stop rust completely but it sure slowed it down at about 85-90%! When I finally was done with the pads and pulled the rotors it was 3.5years later! And at that point they just started getting a little rusty! Cool, isnt it?!
so definitely enjoy them, I'm glad to see others copying Bosch, unless someone was first before them, it was the first one I knew about using this stuff back in 12.
