Yepp it is very normal , when you will drive again when it's not raining it will clean the disc when you apply the brakes

I use to worry about that too. I've seen my rotors looking pretty nasty. After one good brakeing, clean as a whistle. I think this has a lot to do with the squealing people hear when they first back up after the car's been sitting.

When I find myself in a position like this, I ask myself what would General Motors do? And then I do the opposite!

I put a few coats of high-heat paint on the rotors when I did my calipers...no rust, looks awesome!! wink

The rust is no big deal; whenever I wash my car the discs get a little rusty; the first time the brakes get applied after that, the discs get cleaned off.

That's a fact, untreated exposed metal will rust.
