My stock Mintex as provided by Audiconnection

misassumption on bevel as there is none

BAcking plate to pad surface center 16.25 mm (incl backing plate "bubble" 

Backing plate to pad surface edges, 16.25mm  no "extra" matl on any of 4 
pads at center vs edges

Backing plate alone 4.16 mm

Not sure why beveling would matter unless edges are slightly higher than 
rest of pad.

Once you bevel the edges, they fit in just fine, so the center
thickness is correct (or about as thick as you could possibly go.)
Does anyone have measurements on a set of new OEM pads for a guide as
to exactly how much I need to remove?  I assume the OEM pads are
bevelled, so what would be helpful are  measurements of:

-backing plate to pad surface, center
-backing plate to pad surface, edges
-edge of pad to where the bevel stops
