NEW rotors should be available from your FLAPs, even if they'll have to order it. You can get them from RockAuto as well.

FLAPS does not have 510 Rotors. It's hard to tell if Rock Auto has them- I sent them an email asking the question. All of the auto parts stores in my area show zero availability, and they tell me they can't even be ordered. And I'm guessing they all have a computer network that searches the same sources. I did find one Rotor on the other side of the Continent, sold to me by an EBAYer.. $20.00 for the Rotor, $23.00 for shipping. Anouther one or two of those would be nice.

There were four listings at RockAuto yesterday. Why e-mail? Just drill down their selection menus. :?:

Rock auto's customer service rep. sent me a link to a more user friendly version of their catalog, and they do have 4 choices/price levels of 510 Rotors.
Thank's for the above help.

Good deal. I love rockauto. Barely visit the FLAPS anymore.

As far as the body panel goes, are you talking about the little apron/valence below the tail light panel?

Yes, it's the smaller panel below the upper larger one. It has a cut out for the tail pipe. I'll be spot welding/pinch welding it in as the factory did, so I don't want any holes where the welds will go.

I called Rock Auto, and they said that all 510 brake Rotors are out of stock, and cannot be ordered. I asked if they exist somewhere, and he said "Only if someone ordered some when they were available, and they are still on a shelf somewhere." So, if it appears that Rock Auto can get something, it's a good idea to call and have them look it up and see if it can be ordered for sure.

Try NAPA, They list front rotors for the 510.

Napa was sure they could get Rotors, until they call to order them. Quanity available: zero.
