As I was putting together all of the new parts, it occurred to me that the design of the Bendix style bakes are quite remarkable. With relatively few parts, none of which are that tightly machined (with the exception of the wheel cylinder), they perform flawlessly for years. That Vincent Bendix...what a smart guy.

I am excited to give these brakes a try. The front still needs to be address, but still, this has to be much safer than the old '46-'48 Ford brakes that were on here before.
