did you read the first post ???? , anyway , as for stopping the rust forming ( it is a good idea or the discs will get pitted ) , can you remove the wheels and leave it on stands , if you can then i would remove the pads and give the discs a good sloshing of duck oil or something similar , the only problem you are going to have in six months time is cleaning them off , its either that or new discs when you put it back on the road :thumbdown:
Ok If i get the rust off with a bit of braking then it is garaged should the brakes still rust or will they be ok? I was thinking about putting the front discs in some cheap oil as they are the only ones that are rusting that bad and they need swapping over anyways!
The brakes will get rusty anyway.. coz almost all brake discs you see on the road cars are made of cast iron... something which goes rusty very easily!
Mine will go rusty even if i leave it for a night or so, no worries, just go out and after a few traffic lights, all rust being rubbed off. That's another reason why the brake disc being worn down... due to the little by little the iron patricles disposed thorugh rusting.
By the way.. where did you get these grooved+drilled discs and how much did they cost you? (and how good are they?)
