Carl Sagan said we are made of 'Star Stuff', I believe him. 1978 Dodge van I own, the right front brake hose had rubbed against something. I bought a new brake hose and put it on there. That was about 13 years ago.

Thanks for that link!

You are better than I am at finding it and I am not ashamed to admit it.

I'm not sure why, since I used epic's search engine and I gave it the full
name of the report, so, you found it better than I did, I agree.

We all benefit from this information you found because it allows us, at the
very least, to at least tell that a PBR pad is the exact same as a Metal
Master pad which is exactly the same as an Axxis pad, since the numbers
will be the same on all three (for example).

Bear in mind that this document generally covers 3 years, so that's from
December 2014 to December 2017 which is as good as we can ask for.
