2018 Honda CR-V EX-L Lunar Silver
This build is looking great! Glad you're doing those brakes, not me.
Starting on rear wheel cylinders, brake lines, and stainless flex hoses. I will be doing a brake fluid "flush" at the same time and cleaning/adjusting shoes.
Breaking the glaze on the drums and leaving a non directional finish with red resurfacing discs (cookies). I'm only using red because that's what I have in bulk. You can use the rougher cookies or sandpaper.
Always get rid of the rust ridge that builds up on inside rear of drum that hangs out behind shoes.
Cleaning up outside and going red.
Thanks! I appreciate it.Congrats on the upcoming nuptials!
They are usually not too bad. Some can be a pain though I agree.That's good news. Steering racks are.....not fun.
I did the rack on a 2005 TSX last year in July, and there is not as much room to work as there is in a CR-V. And thankfully the impact made quick work of the subframe bolts--the corner of the subframe near the driver's side wheelwell needs to be dropped about two inches so the rack can be turned and removed. Being able to use a smaller impact and a few extensions from the top of the engine bay made removing some of those bolts much easier. If I'd have had to do this with a ratchet and hand tools, I'd have given up.They are usually not too bad. Some can be a pain though I agree.
