Smile 2005 GXP w/new ceramic pads

Front pads needed to be replaced so it was time for Cmax ceramic pads. I also took a wire brush on a drill to knock off the rust on the rotors and then painted them with black heat paint and cleaned all 4 wheels with aluminum wheel acid. I got a few shots of the GXP cleaned up too..

Yes it does.... I was wanting to get new rotors b/c of all of the rust and i was blind to the fact that there was nothing wrong with the rotors and they didn't need to be replaced!! So this is what i decided to do!!! But when this set of Cmax pads wear out im gonna get new rotors was thinking about slotted/drilled but i think im gonna stick with OEM rotors..
