Replaced the front drum brakes this weekend with my wife's Granddad. We thought we were doing great until we got the first all done and went to put the spacer back on. Turns out the wheel studs were a tad to short for the spacer. We called it a day and went out Sunday morning to look for longer studs and that turned into a 5 hour project. We got the studs but only found 3 lug nuts to fit them so we had to get some ordered which will be here tomorrow.

At the end of the day we had both brakes replaced and bled out. All we need are the 7 lug nuts and it will be ready to go.

Snapped a brake line. It was an extended, but I'm not sure what caused it. I don't think it was over extended. It may have caught a lug on the tire.
I replaced it with an even longer extended brake line and I'm going to rig up a spring so it stays away from the tire during its full range.

I've lost 2 of those on that side with mild wheeling. Now have 32" hoses.

Painted my dana20 today. I think it looks pretty good I just can't wait to put it back in and drive in this nice weather. Hopefully I have no problems rebuilding my t15

Cody drove it to school for the first time since before Christmas. I think he was happy, the Honda was getting old.
