The good and bad news about this is that folks who maintain their vehicles like this tend to eliminate themselves over time.

The bad news is that too often, they take someone else with them when they pass over due to not being able to stop as needed in an emergency situation.

Be safe and if you can't afford to do the work - park it and walk!!

It is one thing to fill the cooling channels, but there is still no brake material on the pads so you have a lovely grindstone rubbing every time that the brakes are applied.

Be safe

I have done brake jobs on more than one, that have worn the pads into the cooling fins.

I think that would measure under the minimum allowable thickness.
