Default Cleaning up some brakes on a Lexus

Got a Lexus in today. He wanted me to clean up the brakes a bit. I got in to pull in to the shop. I started it 4 times before I realized it'* a hybrid.

Brushed off the rust and sprayed it. What I used converts the rust. They are actually black, but the picture shows up totally different.

I remember the first hybrid I drove. Pulled it around and all the sudden it shut off! But wait... it'* still moving. Ahhh.

Should look much nicer once you are done, especially with those open rims.

I do wear gloves, but they always seem to get in my way and get taken off. This reminds me, I finished this today and have pictures to upload.
