my 83 turbo had a busted rotor, it was so bad that the radial part came separated from the part that bolts to the hub.
jim's brat had a rotor that did the same.
how thin was the pad(i mean what was left of it?)

Owner brings the car to me, says the brakes just started to make noise. Like what?!? You deaf or something??
Don't remember the exact make of car. But one had been ran so long, that it had worn the piston down.
Had another that the rear shoes had worn down to just the center rib. One heck of a groove in the drum, almost cut in half.
Really like it when someone brings me a car with way iffy brakes. I do them all up right, proper adjustments, and what not. Owner comes to get car, takes off down the road, and screeches to a stop at the stop sign. Well, way short of the stop sign, really. They're so used to driving on iffy brakes, they don't remember what good brakes were.
