Thought id'e give my brakes the once over. took out the rotors and doused em in petrol, woof. Then gently torched the pads, but with a bit more finesse, as not to risk cracking em, im sure some one will tell me this was a bad idea, but i have been told, and it makes sound sense, that burning them with a high volitility substance, will dissolve and then burn away any thicker, less volitile contaminates, like oil and WD40 etc. Without leaving a residue, unlike WD40. In theory, the braking will be a bit sloppy for a few revolutions, then after wearing away the soot properly,should be sharp as a Mofo. Ill let you know how it goes. Entire operation was done in the dark for added effect
