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!)

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..

Wow... a Puma... brings a whole new meaning to the phrase 'polishing a turd'

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.
