finish? You started a brake job and walked away? This better be a restoration where you are doing some heavy-duty work

I think you should take your brakes to a professional, you'd save time and money that way. And also not be liable for brake failure.


I used to be a pro wrencher. Now I pay a pro for all my safety and emissions related work.

yes money. The shops around me can do parts and labor for less than I can buy parts, due to their volume buying power. I didn't say go to the dealer.
