^^^ are you asking for procedurally, or are you questioning my decision to paint them? Either way, you should still buy them.

Mostly I'm appalled cause I freaking love the Black and Yellow, it's my dream brake setup, but all the same I wouldn't hesitate to take these off your hands if I had that kind of jack! Good luck with the sale!

I knew you meant that - i was just playin a bit. It's the whole to each his own thing - I respect that you like the black (its more dark gray than anything) and yellow, but i've never seen a car that I've liked AP's signature colors on....that includes a JGTC car like the Xanavi Nismo Z. The only other color i'd consider besides red would be silver, and that's only because Alcons (at least the Stasis set) only come in it!

What kind of pads and rotors? The AP calipers don't have dust seals, right? Also, would you consider re-painting them black?

the pads and rotors are AP-spec. The items which come with the standard 3100 series kit made for WRX's.

no dust seals - you are correct.

I've decided to remove the red - so they will be back to what was underneath. I'm going to leave them "raw" after they are media blasted, and leave color up to the new owner.

I'm entertaining offers on these. Please don't ultra-lowball me though. I realize that they are more attractive to most people in an unmolested state - so the price will reflect that. But i DO need to replace these with another kit, so i dont want to get creamed if you know what i mean

So is the pad a street pad or track pad? Were the "300 miles" all put on at the track as the pads and backing plates look to have seen quite a bit of heat if they were only used for 300 miles. I'm interested, but plan to use the set-up at the track a bit and I know cross-drilled rotors tend to crack easier. Do you know if they make blanks for your kit?

^^^this kit is the Brake Pros (Stillen) kit. Most of the ones you'll find in the US are from them. The standard kit pad is not a race pad. Most kit makers don;t go into much detail about pad material - but Stillen may fill you in if you call them (they are very helpful customer service wise BTW).

I definitely think they can hook you up with blanks if necessary.

you are correct about the wear on the "business" parts. This set has seen track usage. That's pretty much what it was designed for.

Thanks for the link. I printed out the template to make sure they fit at least my street and track wheels. If you got the AP3100 brake kit you have the Mintex Extreme pads which are a race pad. I was wondering if you faded the pads or boiled the fluid on track with street pads, but you did get this kit from Brake Pros? Unfortunately, they do not make blanks and the replacement rotors are very pricey. What kind of car did you take these off of?

be careful media blasting these as the media can get into cracks/crevices- places where you don't want it- I media'd my calipers before powder coating- I also rebuilt them after powder coating due to the heat- I found a lot of media where I didn't expect it

also these should be AP's 5200 calipers which do have dust boots

I am surprised that you could develop that much heat in the pads from an autocross, but I digress. The Brakepros template was a PITA to reformat so I did not get a chance to check fitment yet. Planning to do that tonight. After BIGSKY posted up about media blasting, I might be interested in taking them as is in the red and doing the paintwork myself. Unfortunately, they still are quite a bit out of my price range. How flexible would you be on that without taking the time to media blast them?

Thanks
