Brake rotor wear ...

Does this look normal?

Can this be turned?

I seen the same on other vehicles including an old '78 Ford van that had been inspected recently! I've also seen the rear brake pad drop and eat a slot through the rotor top hat of many LRs.

I had a ROW 110 in that had so many sets of pads put on it that it had worn the solid front rotors to less than 8mm thick. Also had a customer let his son replace his pads and the car came in with a grinding sound because the friction side of one of the pads was against the caliper....
