930 new brakes squealing

Hi fellow 930 experts,

I had my brakes done a few months ago - new Zimmermann rotors, new Pagen brake pads, calipers rebuilt (using original Porsche 930 kit), replaced some of the flexible brake lines, all in all over $3k
invested (including labor)...

The brakes have been squealing since I got the car back... Especially when I bring the car to a stop lightly. It doesn't squeal when I stomp on the brakes.

My mechanic has even replaced the Pagen pads with Textar, but same problem.

At first, I was told that it will wear out and go away after a few hundred miles, but 4 months later
still squeals and it's annoying...

I have asked my mechanic for more suggestions. One thing he suggested was to glue the back of the pads to the calipers. He says some Mercedes does that. I spoke with another mechanic who told me that there's some sort of lube to put between the back of bad and caliper, but it's not glue.

Anyone have any suggestions?
