Well with the up coming move to Colorado, I'm keeping the RRC unless someone has a series they want to trade me for it
Well I got the brakes rebuilt on the front and rear drivers side and refinished a couple of the wheels. While I was waiting on the fuel pump to show up.
On the fuel pump I learned something don't order parts you need off of Amazon.com They lied to me repeatedly about delivery dates, 22 Aug, 24 Aug, 25 Aug, 27 Aug and now 24 September. I finally had to cancel the order and I'm going to reorder it from a reputable vendor. If they could have been honest about delivery dates I wouldn't have had such a problem with it, but lying to a customer, by a business of that size is just not excusable for me..
Here are some pics of the progress. Some things have taken more time since I refurbishing things as I go. I need to redo the black rim eventually I tried out the color scheme out and it didn't look good on the car at all luckily that was the spare lol.
The rusty rotor was the original one that had been on the car for 40 years.
Sprucing up the disc brake shield.
Another part to order, the kingpin bushings are shot..
Freshing up the hub assembly.
Getting 40 years of grease and grime off.
Going back together.
When I go back in to replace the brake hose and kingpin busings I'm going to paint the calipers, but here it is for now.
Trying out a new color scheme on the rim, I chalked this up to lesson learned and a fail.
Working on something I haven't seen in years, drum brakes.
All done with the drum brakes and back together.
