Nice job! My first real job on my car was changing the brakes too. Feels good doesn't it?

Maybe next time you can try spraying the calipers a color to give it some style matching the cool rotors. (just suggesting an idea)

Danggit now you're making me want to change my rotors! Lol, at least I put piece-o-crap duralast rotor on my passenger side, so it'll probably wear out the same time that my still-used driver-side rotor does and I'll look into getting a pair that looks cooler.

lol now that I take a closer look I see it, I thought you just did an awesome scrubbing job to bring it back to the original metal color. My apologies.
