Its just as well I have a lot of patience otherwise I could see something being launched over the house.
Ha, I count myself among those who would be launching stuff, probably not over the house, but come up with some sort of catapult and take it down to the water and launch it half way to Nantucket before I could get them fit. I'm going to watch this thread, because at some point I'd like to replace mine.

How much of the braking material was left? Quite frankly I can't see these being worn down too much over time due to the fact that they are a static item, since you engage the handbrake after you stop, and the only forces acting on it is the weight of the car. Maybe thats why the shoes aren't that thick to begin with.
I did my rear rotors last fall, and since then I've been annoyed with a maladjusted handbreak. I just can't seem to adjust it quite right.

I don't know if you are interested in getting it back to a later click, but their is a cable adjustment bolt/setup under the car. If you have the car up on ramps you can see cable come from the rear end, go over the fuel tank, and the it follows along the exhaust system (up above the heat shielding). The cable adjuster is located right around the middle of the car (maybe a little towards the back), partially hidden by a heat shield, just need to undo a couple of heat shield nuts and you have full access to it.
