    In this pic (thanks to Shaggy) [​IMG]
    How is the part circled attached to the rotor? To me what it looks like is the actual drum was cut off and the remaining piece was attached to the rotor. Is that what was done here or am I just looking at it wrong.

    The hub (circled part) is held to the drum by the wheel studs pressed through the drum and hub together. To install the rotor you press out the wheel studs and remove the drum and then the wheel studs are pressed through the back side of the rotor and into the hub assembly.

    No welding and no cutting involved.
