After i've fitted the brake parts back i repaired the brake pipes...and i fitted the handbrake linkage on the rear axle.put the brake drums on and i spent a bit of time to bleed the cylinders ,adjust the brakes and the handbrake properly...it takes time,but the brakes have to be perfect...
Everything is work well,its time to give this beauty back to the owner.... :)
I've done a paintwork on the parts...first spray the primer on....:

The paint dried,all parts are nice and clean,the new brake cylinders and brake shoes arrived,so lets fit the brakes back...i used lots of grease .copper grease,and spray grease to make sure the parts not be seized again....
