What's wrong with this picture?

Maybe he installed them immediately after painting, thinking that the "tacky" paint would increase his braking ability...

Yeah, but Nufinish would make them "withstand a year's worth of car washes."

Reminds me of the trailer queens I've seen at car shows with CHROME PLATED rotors.

just don't be in front of him during those 1st few situations </div></div>

I'd be willing to bet this individual was just bright enough to use a "high temperature" powder coat formula.

True, and the brake pads are often replaced with pucks of urethane plastic (or similar), so as not to mar the chrome on the rotors, of course. Just imagine the braking performance... But for all-out custom car show crazies whose cars are absolute 100% trailer queens, it's definitely within the realm...

If you look close at the second photo you can see that this is a C4 Corvette.

When I bought the 3 8,000# disc brake axles for my trailer I contacted Dexter to see why they did a stupid thing like paint the rotors. They laughed at me and told me, in no uncertain terms, that I had my head up my behind. They paint them because they are often shipped on open trucks and the end user doesn't like to see rust.

I was told that their tests showed that the paint never lasts past the first normal stop. Sure enough, one normal stop, no paint.

I will admit that it does look goofy. He should at least have painted them silver.
