They had a diamond belt sander, and went back to their shop to get it. In a few minutes they re-countered the glass and it went together like a glove! No scratches on the new paint. The seal is smooth all the way around. Sometimes you just have to pay the "guy" who has done it many times before.
    fortunately i had both pieces of old glass, no longer viable both had cracks but took both pieces to glass shop and they matched it perfectly,,,,,,, but i just dont have the damn skills to put it together and will rely on them because this is what they do

    Did Jake pump the brake pedal while you ran the bleeder screw?

    I followed the book word for word on the adjustment procedure also. I sure had a hard time getting the wrenches on the front lock nuts. How did you get the bottom lock nuts? I had to grind down and bend an old box wrench. I think it definitely will take me a little practice to get this right! A whole lot different than jacking up the old Chevy and turning the star wheel till the shoes drag.

    That is a great video. I had a lot of trouble getting the adjusters to lock the brakes. I also had to modify a 3/4 inch wrench to get to the front lower lock nuts. The knuckle is right there in the way. I wonder where I could get that 3/16" adjusting wrench he had? That would be awesome. I was using a small crescent wrench.

    No matter - it's our fault.

    New Subject:

    Stand by for a lot of information about Oil Pressure Gauges, sensors and related stuff. My science project is over, but it takes as long to write it up as it did to do it.
