Yesterday, Parts Car #58 from Tallahassee, Florida had it's Booty pushed up in the air so I can remove the rear end .. the last step in my take down process. I normally get it way up there as you see in the picture then spray all those 3/4" nuts with PB Blaster then walk away from it for a day. I wanted to get to it today but got busy with the house addition project and best I could do today was get some pictures.
Speaking of pictures, I take a lot! When I come a cross a good condition brake setup I will get a few pictures like the one below just for reference. There are so many parts involved with the brakes, and the pictures really help me id everything. I have taken these same shots over and over but if I see a good setup the digital pictures are free and will often snap away. These days I normally completely disassemble the brake parts still up on the car hauler with rear end up in the air. It just makes it easier with the brake stuff right there in my face. Each and every brake component goes into separate containers that then go into boxes for Front Brakes or in this case Rear Brakes. I also keep the shop manual illustrations printed out and in the box and actually live pictures so I can find the parts fast.
One other thing I might mention in this ramble, is the fact I am now 1000% more aware of the nuts and bolts as I take these items apart since I know they will be headed to the cadmium plater's at some point. Before, I saved everything but now I know the really good conditioned stuff is really going to look nice with new plating. So.. that is tonight's Booty Ramble.
