Mel,

How are your semi-metallics in the cold morning? Just wondering, not that is gets very cold in my garage.

Thinking about the old Metallic brake linings, as I recall, they were a bit of a problem till warmed up. But really great when you needed them, meaning no brake fade problems.

Well, they have always treated me fine.
Have never noticed adverse braking when it is cold.
And I DO drive my Vert in ALL seasons!
BUT, then again, I have had great luck doing things with my Corvairs that I later am told can't be done.
So, I guess it is true . . .
Ignorance IS bliss!
I didn't even know that I had semi-metallics until the recent brake thread was discussing what color of lining is the currently preferred shade.
I had my wheels off at the time of that discussion, and asked what was the story on my funny looking linings, and was informed that they are semi-metallics.
I am glad to know that they are still available.
I had been told that they were hard to find, and mine are due for replacement real soon!

I've run a set of the Brake Performance shoes for a couple of years now. They seem to be a quality product and I am happy with them. No complaints.

Sounds like these would be good to put on my coupe for rear brakes to mate up with the front discs.

You know, you could go to your local flaps and get the same shoe for half that. It seems all of the new shoes out there are all semi-metallic shoes.

Those are "Low" metallics. These "supposedly" are "Semi" and of course I'd luv to find some "Full" metallics.... like back in the 80's.

Nice thing about PayPal.... I can return them...like Prime.


I did just find these on ebay $32 Thought I had a saved search!
