rally De­sign had sup­plied us with their new hand­brake shoe 1 ser­vice kit, so we took it along to tasker and lacy to have the hand­brake shoes re­newed. We only needed a cou­ple of tools from the kit, but the equip­ment will help with other cars in the fu­ture.

the hand­brake shoe ad­juster is po­si­tioned at nine o’clock on the off­side rear and three o’clock on the near­side rear. there’s an in­spec­tion hole in the brake disc that gives room to feed in a screw­driver and back off the ad­juster. 3 t

 We had 2 al­ready seen the poor con­di­tion of the hand­brake shoes last month, so didn’t waste any time in strip­ping the rear brakes. First, the en­tire caliper and car­rier were re­moved by un­do­ing two 18mm bolts for the car­rier.
