Bedding = Pad Matching

Bedding, by definition, is the mating one surface to another. I follow the bedding procedure outlined by several manufacturers.

I do wonder if part of the problem with the Akebonos is the bedding. I just read their stuff again and they state to not bed their brakes, but rather to driving about 500 miles without any aggressive braking. That's not what most of us are used to.
