July 2005 has a very thorough look at brakes and brake systems including update options and modifications on a level that I have not seen on the forms and that I rarely see in the Publications including Panorama anymore.

The latest issue of Panorama has an article referring to brakes that basically boils down to change your brake fluid from time to time.

Here is a representative page from the 2005 panorama of simple but thorough evaluation, comparison, and contrasting documentation of rotors, pads, and accompanied by reference data that goes beyond the current offerings from Panorama or excellence. Also, well beyond any average build thread on the forums.

I tend to agree with the sentiments that many articles and even publishers did a more thorough and 'better' job on their tech stories in the not so distant past. Many car features now seem to be basically a FOR SALE ad for the owner with the last paragraph including a statement indicating the car "is now up for sale" and contact information for the seller.

There is one article series that I can think of off the top of my head that I made sure I got all the issues. It was a five part series in European Car describing a 3.2 Carrera engine rebuild for a late 80s car. The then owner is here on Pelican but I cannot remember his handle - 3.5 something or other. Now that article had value in my opinion.

Missed this thread. Just wanted to say thanks to those who appreciate and clearly "get" what 000 is about, and after.

If you're in Atlanta or anywhere near it: Would love to see you at PECATL on 11/17. We're having a little shindig called Rare Shades 2, and everyone is invited...

Although Panorama is good, 000 is GREAT.
