Paint For Rotors and Calipers

In July I bought a used 2015 F150 XLT Sport pkg Crew Cab 5.0 with 20" grey spoked alloy wheels with 20k miles, great deal, etc. Very pleased overall. the rotors and calipers are very visible; they showed the usual rusting and as a quick fix after using a wire brush on 'em I then applied a brush-coat of RustOleum Gloss-Black Latex Enamel on all visible surfaces of calipers and rotors (except of course the friction surfaces). So far after 5K miles everything looks like the day I did the work; no discoloration, fading or deterioration, with a number of washes so far. Very pleased and quite honestly surprised at the durability so far. YMMV, of course but I am sold. I dunno what Ohio salt will do, but like the guy who jumped from the roof of the 10-story hotel, as he passed the 3rd floor he shouted "So far, so good!!"

Yes, I'm well aware of that.

Sorry, I did not mean to make that sound like a slap. I just thought the results of such an inexpensive touchup were interesting and worth a mention.
