Default Brake Conversion

I did not look through the forums to see if any one has ask or done this. I wanted to see if any one has changed out the brake drums in the back to rotars cause my drums are rusted to hell and back so over spring break I'm gona do a full brake job and paint my drums black to slow the rusting. But I figured if I'm gona do all that work I might as well see how hard it would be to swap them out for rotars.

Not sure anyone did it, been talked about a lot....
You could get parts from a junkyard and replace - you'd have to bleed the brake lines, and you'd need the entire hubs.
I did see a kit, but is was like $1,000....
