Rear Drum Brakes

In Brakes, In the Garage by George1 Comment

When I took on this project in 2014 I pictured myself assembling factory new parts in a lab like environment and everything worked just as it did in 1970. Reality rarely meets fantasy; it takes time and effort to achieve fantasies.

Some of the brake hardware has been purchased over 2 years ago and the rest has just sat around waiting for its restoration. The biggest time waster is finding myself short of a nut or something trivial that needs to be plated which has a month turnaround. Even simple things like painting parts properly has to be executed with precision planning around my family and work.

As the 5 year milestone of my project passed though, that fantasy has finally began to bear fruit. The sheer joy of the assembly has raised my spirits and enthusiasm.
