Haha yeah so I heard.

EDIT: Gat Dayum these pads squeel at low speeds lol. I didn't use any brake lube(I never do) so I might rip the HPS shims off and put them on the HP+ pads and use lube. I dobut it'll help cause I'm sure it's the physical pad material content that is making the squeeling.

tried to pull out my dent and ended up cracking the paint at the deepest part, it's not going to come out too easily with the rebar right behind it. But at least the dent on a whole isn't as deep or large anymore.

I'm fed up with it, so i'm going to have to use a screw in puller to get it out, then fill low spots and repaint once this wet weather is gone so I don't get any moisture in there.
