If they are smooth and thick stuff, i'd use them again.

Depending on how grooved the pads are, and you should be able to eyeball them while they are off the car and know if they are salvageable or not, I would think that you could resurface the pads adaquately enough using a belt sander and say a 120 grit belt. If your results are satisfactory, the pads perfectly flat with lots of material and thickness left, reuse the pads. BUT>>>>if you have any doubts as to whether the pads will be safe to use when you finish the resurfacing....spend the money and buy new pads! Saving a few dollars may prove to be a bad mistake.
