Re: Sanding brake discs

As long as the pads mate and line-up with the disc correctly, then they should erode any corrosion after a few stops.

I can understand that a roughened and unstable corroded surface may end-up giving a brake performance which is a bit unpredictable and 'snatchy' as a result.

If you are going down the grinding & milling route, you really would need a lathe to ensure it's all correct.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
