    I once spent 8 hrs at a car show, drove up , put my car on the stand and then sat down in my camping chair. Then proceeded to watch a guy clean and polish his Puma for the next 6 hrs!! (show and sine madness!)

    Another show I watched as a guy removed his road wheels and disks, then replace them with pristine disks and wheels. Then took all the masking tape of the front extremities of the car that were subject to bug/stone rash...

    The next time I will be at a show the car may not even be painted fully, let alone the rust on the brakes worn off LOL..

    Surface rust is a nonissue - lets face it, unless your car lives in salt, stands for days at a time or similar, the discs will dry in use and rust will be limited. I replaced my discs a while back, not because of the surface rust, but because the contact area had worn and was noticeably thinner than the non-contact part of the disc (after 103000 miles). New shiny vented discs soon became non-shiny and surface rusted. Face, bothered. They still try to rip my face off, so it's all good..heh.
