After a mighty battle, the rear brake cylinders are off of my car.
Tomorrow they go in a box to Brake and Equipment for refurbishing and
sleeving. Does anyone know if they do powder coating? Seems like it
would make sense to stop corrosion forever.

Having never worked on drum brakes before, this has been
an...education. Of the cursing and hitting things with a sizeable ball
peen hammer sort.

In staring at the car, there is a fairly ratty peice of rubber where
the axle meets the hull, and it appears to be held on with bailing
wire. I suspect this is not stock on the car. Is this whats referred
to in the catalogue as the axle spline boot?
