Resto: Rear brakes removed today

Friday night Ray arrived with his special 1928 "wheel puller" to remove the rear wheels from the axles due to them being on there very tight and we both think that they have never been off the car before.
There was no slop or unwanted movement in the axles and the keyways on the axle ends were like new also, one brake seal showed a leak, that other was fine so I will need to replace some parts on the rear brakes over the next few weeks.

This is what we found when we removed the rear wheels

This is after I removed the outer and inner asbestos brake bands and cleaned the housings all up but theres still alot more polishing to do.

I like this photo, another day done and closing the shed!!
