Thanks Lou. Could I ask if the coating needs to be removed on the new brake rotors that I purchased from Mercedes.

we usually dont remove it, you can but we usually just slap them on and let the pads burn it off, it doesnt harm anything, everyone did it differently, I never removed it its a super thin coating.

Thanks Lou for all your help

No problem, ,one last thing i always due is wire wheel the hub surface of the wheel hub to make sure the rotors go on flat, also wire wheel the face of the back of the wheels, and also apply anti sieze around the hub center to stop corrosion from welding to the wheels. makes it hard for the customer or tech to remove wheels if not cleaned on a regular basis, Lou
