    Break pad Selection Guide

    Replacement rotor ring:
    Front: D
    Rear: D

    Replacement disk:

    1. Do not post the whole sheet of pdf dwg - use only clipping with water mark (see example on other items on web or image server).
    2. Do not indicate rotor weight in "custom fields" - they should be tabulated in a weight table to compare the weight saving against OE whenever possible.
    3. Watch pricing - It was $3750 which is far from front ($1213) and rear ($1050) separately, even though the customer already mentioned his friend purchased the kit for little over $2k, I fixed it.

    4. The shipping weight was adjusted to 75 lbs (vs. 50 lbs); 40 - 50 lbs is normally only for one side.

    Watch the link, spelling and terminology. (Under Description)

    Replacement rotor ring - instead of 'Replacement disks' or 'Disk Replacement
    Under brake pad link, they should be linked to PD1001-3 which will show ALL compounds other than -391, but if the link is PD1001-391 it only duplicates the "street pads" which is already included in the kit.

    Spelling; Brake pad (Not Break)

    How to Optimize Images for Better Web Design & SEO

    In Subfolder & File Names, Use Only Lower Case Letters, Numbers & Hyphens

    Google and Bing are both terrific at handling complex URLS with spaces and non-standard or encoded characters. Where the problem lies is when other websites link to your documents. If you do not encode special characters, the content management systems of those websites that link to your documents may encode them.

    For example, spaces become %20. If those websites use different character sets than what your site uses, they may not translate special characters correctly. The safest thing to do is keep it simple by using only a to z and 0 to 9 and hyphens.

    According to the technical standard, URLs are case sensitive. Most content management systems handle mixed case addresses by rewriting them to lower case, but check yours and do not assume this. The 11 Golden Rules of Writing Content for Your Website

    1. Know your audience

    2. Follow the “inverted pyramid” model

    3. Write short, simple sentences

    4. Stick to active voice

    5. Show, don’t tell

    6. Nix the jargon

    Consider this sentence:

    The journalist grabbed a SOT from the MOS, drove back to the station and put the story in the can.

    Many of these terms are comprehensible only to broadcast journalists. A reader-friendly revision would be:

    The journalist interviewed a bystander about the incident, and recorded her statement to include in the story. 7. Mix up your word choice

    8. Make text scannable

    9. Incorporate multimedia

    10. Layer website content

    11. Leave them wanting more

        General pricing guideline:
        Car kit: $2,000 to $2,800
        Pad kit: $250 - $400

        Rotors (front or rear): 30% of Car kit - Pad kit, eg. (2800-400) x 30% = $720
        Pads cost is approx 15% (30% of 15%= 4.5% of kit cost (~$420)
        Front pad deduct; 5% = $140
        Rear pad deduct: 3% = $84
        No pad at all: deduct 4% = $112
