bonding brakes

We are planning to reline our Bendix 3 shoe brakes, with 3/16 material and brass rivets. My question, would it be advisable to also add some brake bonding agent with the rivets?

Thanks

Re: bonding brakes

Not sure why you would need to do both. If linings already drilled for rivets, then if properly installed they will work fine. Bonding is done with adhesive and heat and pressure which obviously works great also. You'll get more braking events with the bonding than with riveting since you don't have any rivet heads to run into and potentially score your drum. But most likely not an issue on a collector car?

Those prices are a good incentive to learn how to do them yourself!
