    Default Not for the Corvette but could be.

    Does anyone know of a spray on or otherwise, product to keep disk brake rotors from rusting without trashing the pads? This would be on a trailer sitting for an extended time on sandy soil, outside in Florida.

    Krylon clear coat in a spray might work, I doubt it would trash your pads. I used it on all my boat engines that I owned regularly (I had to apply it a few times a year when it wore off, not just once) and never had any rust.

    Maybe those full wheel covers (like you see on RV's) would help & also help save the tires? Just guessing.

    Been in Key West a couple days. Froggy, I have the covers your talking about. I just think they won't be enough. When I wash the Vette, the rotors are already turning brown before I can dry it.

    I would go to a car museum and ask the guy/gal that maintains the exhibits (not the docents) what they do. You have to make sure whatever you put on does not contaminate the pads when you start driving the car again. If you do that let us know.

    I've got some time before I might need to do this. I'll let you know if I find something.
