It took me and a friend about 6 hours total to polish all of the calpiers.... Took 2 hours for the first one and 30min. for the last one... We kinda got the hang of it after the second one...
Not for the tech... Just wandering how many brake stands can you do before the brakes start getting low, prolly like 15 seconds a piece?? Also, does it hurt the rotor when you do brake stands? Will i need any special tools to replace the pads.. I heard the Hawk brakes are pretty good...
