Default lol... My SSEi brakes

So boosty and i both thought the breaks would be fine for a bit till i had $ to change them
They have been sitting for like 3 or 4 months so you know how that is with breaks.

So when i first drive it around boostys neighborhood it was Very scary
Felt like i was going to crash any moment


But they started to feel a bit better after 5 miles.
So i went down to Petes house to pick up my New 2.55 pulley and the way that was not the most fun ride lol. I was keeping LOTS of space in front of me

On the way back to boostys it started feeling better. so i deiced to drive it home like that. They still Grinded Loud bu it stopped

After driving to work today i HAD to do something about them, way to loud. So i took my Almost new Bendix Breaks from my SE and swapped them on.
MUCH!!!! better now. it stops just fine now




So.... Here are some pics of what the old breaks looked like






.

Just backing out of the garage in that 95, I knew the brakes were crappy. Those brakes were not good. But hey, Bill was right, you had SOME time before you had to replace them, you got at least 500 miles out of them.

I love the brakes on my 94. Brand spankin' new brakes from the MC to the hoses. It feels good to stop well, that'* for sure.

Just imagine how I felt driving 90 miles a day for 1 1/2 weeks with NO brake pressure.
