I'd like to return these brake pads. They damaged the paint on my brake rotors.

Some people should not be allowed to own a wrench.

Last time I had my wheels off and was giving the calipers a quick hit with black (as well as the rotor hats because they had some rust forming) I hit the rotors with black as well. When I put the wheels on it looked kinda cool because the brakes could bearely be seen....and they kinda looked like carbon rotors.

Yellow, on the otherhand, is for Honduh driving ------s.

If they went painted a primary color i dont see the problem. I should have dont that to my rotors before I installed them. Black looks much better than rust.

I actually had a neighbor get irritated and tell me i needed to take better care of my car because he could see rust on my rotor. I drove the car every day and baby it. He just felt like he had to get into everyones business because he was old and didn't give a damn what people thought. I aspire to be like him one day...............sitting in a busted *** lawn chair in my front yard drinking a warm beer in my underwear with a garden hose to spray at kids while yelling at them to get off my sidewalk. That will be a glorious day.

Well, damn... I don;t know why I could not stop... could it have something to do with the yellow pain on the stopping surface of the rotor? Hmm, what's that burning smell?

Geez... hope they will be smart enough to burn that **** off and then change the pads after the fact!

******* yellow rotors....
