    Cost wise we don't bother resurfacing. They're cheap enough anymore the customer comes out ahead due to labor savings. Plus cost of machine operation it's not worth it
    83 Thunderturd even bigger turd probably LQ4 4L80 swap at some point

    Sure. I just figured you charge an outrageous amount so may not get much business.

    My whole point was, no matter what, you are not going to be turning rotors (much).

    I havent had a rotor turned since the late 80's or early 90's. These days I definitely wouldn't. I did rotors and pads on the truck last month.....<$200 shipped for slotted/drilled with ceramic pads.

    Trump should just announce punitive tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum and say it’s in retaliation for China hacking OPM and the Obama and McCain campaigns

    You just seem to me as someone who would overcharge for anything that requires your time. That sounds bad, but it's nothing personal.
