Disc Glazing

Okay so I got new crossdrilled disc and Hawk pads and at first I wasn't very impressed with the stopping power.

Then I npticed that the disc looks very glazed. DOH!!!

Servers me right for getting too excited and not bedding them in.

So, now that I have glazed disc (I think) what should I do? I've seen/heard of people talking a power sander to sand off the glaze.

i wouldnt sandblast discs...

if they are glazed theres not much you can do. You can de-glaze pads, well sort of with some sandpaper.. but its not going to do much

take 240 grit sandpaper and put it on an orbital sander, take the glazing off the rotors, scuff up the pads using 120 grit sandpaper, rub the pads in a direction perpendicular to the normal direction of wear. good to go!
