Replaced all 4 drum brakes today. Shoes and drums. The old ones actually didn't look that bad. A couple of the shoes were cracked and one set of hardware was siezed in the back. Got that all taken care of and took for drive around the block. Looks like I will need to bleed them again. Had to pump the brakes to get good stopping power. Course that could just be the manual brakes. I don't know. This is the first vehicle I've owned that was like this.
Also cleaned up my hub caps and put them on.

If it felt squishy at all, definitely get it bled again. (No TWSS comments please)

What master cylinder are you running?  The impala had uninspiring brakes until I got the Right Stuff mc. Holy crap they stop now.

Alex, please don't hurt me for saying this, but your ride is beautiful!  I love the look!  I wonder how I would fit in it?  ROTFL

With a pair of goggles and a taller roll bar convertibles are great for tall people! You just look right over the windshield Lol

Thanks for the compliments, but trust me it's no art. It's one of those "good from far" "far from good" type deals. She definitely looks better in the picture than in person. Still in work, although it has never been planned as a show queen. Hopefully I can get it to Dain's Scrambler status as a driver. We will see how well my patience holds up. LOL!
