Congrats! The only thing that sux, will be the wait.
My only suggestion is to use new cotter pins when installing. It's always a good idea to change them since your straightening to get the stock rotors off and rebending them w/the new rotors will compromise their integrity.

I think the hardest part is bleeding the braking system. If you can do that, it is't that hard. I hope you are installing new pads with your new rotors too, so they can get proper seating and will not warp it.

If the system lines aren't opened up, it may not be necessary to bleed the system. Check into it (ask HondaAcuraWorld - he has another post on this topic it think).

Shyne, the cotter pins should be a couple bucks for each one. And I would check the pads out very carefully. It's always suggested to put NEW pads w/new rotors. You don't want to have to turn those new x-drilled before it's time. Just check them out thoroughly, you could be OK as long as there isn't any abnormal wear.
