Looks great. I think the pins for the emergency brake are in backwards.

D'oh. Well, I guess they're gonna stay that way. When whoever owns it after me wants to make it a show car, then they'll have somethng to do, right?

Thanks, I appreciate it! Hopefully it'll give the experts something to laugh about, and maybe be a good lesson in "what not to do" for anyone else!

Nice pictures and I'm glad you posted them. You should remove the rear drums and correct the springs holding the parking brake bands. Your picture shows the springs in the closest holes to the support carrier, and they belong in the outside holes. I made the same mistake years ago, and I also discovered it when I looked at a picture I took of the brakes.

With the springs hooked in the close holes on the band, the spring ends can catch on the carrier and cause problems.

Your right Bill I don't know what I was thinking. It would have been better to
say nothing that way if the pins stick out to far and rub on the hub he can
take it apart later and turn them around.

Very nice organization on the website.

I think I saw your first video on youtube awhile ago, nice to see how far it's coming.

Good catches Bob and Tom W.!
