Picked up used car.  Do most cars have the brake hardware drilled and wire tied?  This car does not.

I've done it, but not on a regular basis.

 

Spend the effort on checking the caliper bolts for tightness. Especially the rear pins. The fixed rear pin is actually an allen bolt that can come loose and break. Remove the caliper and check this bolt often if you run on bumpy tracks or run over a lot of rough curbing.
