You may be SOL given the time constraint, but you may have answered yourself-
if the outer pads aren't working, not only will you have less braking power,
but they won't be wiping the rotors clean. Sound like the pistons froze up, or
the caliper isn't floating on its pins.

Have the calipers ever been replaced/rebuilt? If not I'd bite the bullet
replace everything. Esp in the mountains of WV.
