    Thanks Alex!!! Wow, that must be one shakin' dance floor... literally. But I guess if someone breaks something, you have a handy container to haul it to the hospital in.
    Thanks,

    AHhhh,

    that feeling you get when you are able to pin down that illusive thing we call progress

    I often feel like I just progress from one state of unfinishedness to the next state of unfinishedness

    Versitile plastic cuboid....where would we be with out them

    Ooh, update...

    I just bought a bunch of stuff for finishing the rear end. Early Christmas present from the wife. Drum brake repair kit for front and back (springs in the drum and whatnot) , axel seals, tranny to body seals, new drum pads, back up switch, right and left rear tranny mounts, clutch return spring (mine snapped), and the brake hose bracket clip thingies. All for under $90 from CIP1. Should arrive in a week or 2. Hopefully sooner, but it'll give me time to tear apart the front drums and clean them up.

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
    Thanks,

    Nic.

    Mine would be "I need an new pair of shoes" this is then followed by "oh and a hand bag to go with them" then more than probably some clothes, etc. etc. You will never win, you think you are getting a deal and then all the crap falls around you (or is it just me?)
    Oh hell and Christmas is on the way (oops sorry for mentioning that) I actually hate Christmas as I never get the right prezzies and nearly always never get one I bloody like or can use baaah humbug.

    I put my rear brakes together last night with my new parts. However, they seem to not move real smoothly. I followed the pictures/diagrams in the Bentley manual, but it all seems really tight. For instance, the large spring that connects at the bottom of the brake pads, I had to PULL the pads into place with lots of force. Is this normal? Anyone have this problem? Anyone have their pictures of their drums innards?

    Also, the bump stops that bolt around the spring plate, are those really necessary? Has anyone not used them? Mine are all dirty/nasty/rusty and new ones are $25 a piece. I COULD clean them by hand and repaint them, but I don't wanna. Or pay $40 to have them sand blasted.

    Oh, and HOW do you get those rubber bumpers off? I pulled and twisted and glared at them in a menacing way ... nothing.

    HELP!
    Thanks,

    Nic.
