Yes! I did it

I changed my rotors which wouldn't come off!

Basically, I needed a finer precision tool:


I turned out the wheels, and this time I was able to make full swings with a larger hammer. Worked like a charm! Got those suckers out!

This is how it was (new pads already in place)



And this is how it is now:

Thise is an EBC set: http://www.*********.com/Automotive.html

Green Stuff pads and slotted rotors. No, rotors do not come in silver, they are anodized gold only. But anyway, the only part that stays anodized after a couple of days is the hub, because everything else is quicky scraped off the rotor surface.

You can buy EBC at AJUsa.com. They used to be available at TireRack as well, but no more. I like them: GreenStuff pads are great in cold and hot conditions, and produce virtually no dust. AJUsa emails 10% off coupons on a regular basis. Let me know if you need it.
