This pic is after pad bed-in



The pads themselves carved the line where the paint stops. No rust between them and the "hat"


Obviously dont paint the WHOLE BRAKING SURFACE!

Also make sure to clean your new rotors thoroughly with brake cleaner before painting. They usually have some oil residue on them from being machined.

Cadium coated rotors will also negate the rust you are finding, cost me $10 extra per rotor to be coated and I have gone through a Canadian winter with no rust!

Check the link in my sig for pics of said rotors, and there are used shots as well with 5k on them and they still look like I took them out of the box.

Also, put them on my CRV (DD duties + winter) and yea zero rust, no need to paint and they always look mint!

Okay. So basically, clean, sand, and paint both parts and I'm set.

Any tips, do's or dont's on painting part B? Don't wanna screw up anything...

I would recommend thoroughly cleaning the braking surface before reinstalling. You don't want to leave any oils or contaminants on there. Use a towel, and spray brake cleaner on the towel. Use the damp towel to clean the rotor. Simply spraying brake cleaner on the brake surface may begin to strip the freshly applied paint.

You need not sand.

These are the people. Distribute through a few shops I deal with here in ontario.

BTW I updated my thread with new pics of my calipers repainted and the rotors and pads are still in mint shape.

Pull the wheels off, and scrub the rotor hat and calipers with a wire brush (just to get off what you can), then spray them off with brake cleaner. Wait for them to dry, tape off what you need to, and spray away.
