    Default new rear pads been replaced

    hi muckers just done my rear brakes with my homemade rewind tool lol went well really
    sorry about the crappppy looking caliper lol not my mod

    used 7mm socket key and removed plastic bungs

    re fitted carrier to top of cylinder to hold in place makes life easier



    refited one tip from mr would be to unclip handbrake cable so you can move the caliper to get bottom bolt fixed back in place coz its a buggger to get in

    and one homemade rewind tool now i think its quite impressive imho lol


    will be repainting calipers in the summer honest

    Nice rewind tool lol I like the idea of bolting the bottom of the carrier to the top, have never tought of that. This would have saved taking the skin of my knuckles plenty of times...

    I am wondering what the pitch of the thread is, ie number of threads per inch, so i can make a better one than the one I currently have.
