Old rotors, what to do with them?

So, installed new rotors from DaveZ and I have my OEM ones in the garage. Placed a thread in the for sale section but no takers. What to do with these? Dump in the trash and hope they do not fall on the trash guy?

I'm gonna make some sculpture stuff like a base for a lamp or some sort of stand. Hell even a mic stand might look cool if a piston was worked into the mic itself.

Here in shaky California we stack them up on the corners of the house to keep the house from moving in earthquakes. I suppose in Kansas they would be equally helpful in keeping Dorothy's house from flying away in a tornado.

Glue them to the garage floor so you have stoppers when you park

Sell them to someone wanting to do a "Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes" ?

These rotors are pretty worn down....they got replaced after 70K and 3 days of track events. The rears one are almost down to the min limit and the front ones only have a bit of life left. I ended up upgrading my rotors for better street driving and for better track driving (I only do a few days a year at the most).

Save them for a few years.... when you clean out the garage, reminisce for a moment, then throw them in the metal recycle bin.

If you have a shade canopy (EZ-Up or equivalent) you can use them as weights to hold the legs down. put the leg through the center hole and use a tie-down strap up to a cross piece.

Or ship them to me as weights for my tractor box blade. They'll drop right over the upward projecting ends of the scarifiers.
