You won't stop this from happening on these discs. Drive the car every day to get rid of it.

I disagree...stopping would be a better solution, it rubs the rust off that way!

I think I may have a solution here. When you get it home and parked in the garage, jack it up, remove each wheel, get your electric hair dryer out and blow all the discs dry. Then wipe down each disc with a clean and clinically sterile dry absorbent cloth (We don't want to introduce any disc eating bacteria to the discs). Put the wheels back on, lower the car off the jacks and smile because you're all set to experience brake discs with no rust whatsoever. Repeat each time it's humid or wet out.

So you're going to invest in some cheap, low quality discs just so you don't see surface rust when you first go to your car in the morning?

Well if you want rotors that don't rust that's what you'll get; cheap, low quality. I gave you an explanation of that back on page one. No need to get all testy.

You can do this: http://www.carcare101.info/project-m...-brake-rotors/

There's another method I do not recommend at all. Just before a brake job, take the rotor off and paint the entire thing whatever color you want, and reinstall with the old brake-pads. Drive around making hard stops, then install new brake pads. Don't do this though. No seriously, just don't.
