    Painted Rotor Hubs?

    Please forgive a newbie if this is an old topic, but has anyone else painted their rotor hubs to prevent the recurrent rust that appears there? I cleaned mine with some Naval Jelly and a wire brush, then put on coats of automotive primer and high-heat Rustoleum in metalic silver. I doubt that the paint is gonna hold up forever, but they sure look a lot better than those rusty hubs.

    ^^^^^^^^
    Ditto here.

    I use Duplicolor spray caliper paint - it comes in several colors silver, black, red, blue, etc.

    I have done the same twice now.
    Darkman, how is the caliper paint holding up?

    I used the silver caliper paint and primer as well. Although I only had them for 6 or so months before I got new rotors they held up nicely.
