Red spray paint (volume 400 ml);
Masking tape (width 30 mm);
Medical ethyl alcohol;
Cosmetic cotton pads;
Newspapers and a couple of plaques.
I bought paint and masking tape at a hardware store, took alcohol from a pharmacy, and sneaked cotton pads from my girlfriend. All this took me about 60 hryvnyas ($ 2.5), as you can see, not a lot. Well, now for step-by-step instructions.

How to paint brake discs correctly?
First of all, you will need to glue the entire working surface of the rotor with masking tape in order to avoid paint getting there, otherwise there will be very little sense from such brakes later.
Before painting, it is necessary to degrease the surface to be painted with alcohol. To do this, take a cotton pad, moisten it with alcohol and thoroughly wipe each rotor on both sides.
Find a closed, ventilated area where you will do all the work. In my case, it was a warehouse at my former job. The main thing is that there is not a lot of dust around, otherwise all this will settle on fresh paint.
Place the bike rotors on two planks so that they rest on them, resting on the sealed part, then shake the paint well and apply the first coat evenly. After that, turn over to the other side and do the same.
After about 30 minutes, when the first layer is dry, apply the second and you can even then and the third, to be sure. Then leave the whole thing to dry for 1 day and voila – the next day your discs are ready!
It’s elementary, Watson!
Well, as you can see, there is nothing complicated here, everything is quite simple and elementary. Within a day, your discs will be no worse than those that are sold 1.5-2 times more expensive in bike shops. The visual effect is guaranteed. All your friends and acquaintance cyclists will definitely notice such tuning and quite possibly want the same for themselves.
