no big deal, I don't even replace the screws anyway. If you're replacing the rotors it's of no matter whatsoever.

perfect! i was reading that the screws are pretty much useless, but i didn't know if i should just keep drilling to the point where there is a better separation between the screw and rotor.

perhaps i'll try a needle punch and hammer some of the metal away on the screw

Ya the whole purpose of those screws is to hold the rotor while the car moves down the assy line.

i recall reading that in another thread related to the two screws in the rotor, but overall, i was fearing the fact that i removed too much material off of the rotor.

consider me retarded

@the_owl were you not removing the rotors to replace?

Nothing exciting to see here.
None of those pics are drilled completely through the rotor & into the hub.

Swap your rotors & enjoy
