Have some pictures of my new SuperSlot Rotors that will be going on my MX6. Have some questions; they are labeled right and left. Which side of the car is right and left??? I would also like to paint them. They need to be degreased and then I was told to paint them with aluminized paint. Which type of product should I use to clean them up; and then where do I get aluminized paint? Should I even bother since I don't run the car in winter nor in bad weather.

I believe that the drivers side is left and pass. side is right, somebody can correct me if I am wrong.
I am not sure painting them is a good idea. Won't they get really hot during use and cause the paint to peel? Won't this also affect the performance of the rotors, especially since they are slotted. I think they would look better plain anyways.

Painting the rotors with Aluminized paint is actually better than cadnium plating. The paint will wear away from where the break shoe touches it; but the rest of the rotor will be protected.

Hey Manifest

Are these the rotors from the bulk buy? Just curious cause I'm looking to purchase in a couple of weeks.

Yes, Driver's side is left and Passenger side is right. I like unpainted rotors myself - painted calipers look good sometimes though.

Rotors and Pads

I bought those rotors and the green pads from the PT bulk buy. My car stops on a dime. They are great, let me know when you get them on.
