What car is it @tortron? Not because I've got useful info but curiosity. The early turbo Pulars were good for cracking behind the front door due to being a bit weak there. one good railway jump could warp them so ive been told.

It's fine tho

 

Actually it was real thin at that spot. I recon they didn't account for the stretch when pressing the panel. In any case its lasted about 25 years

3M aluminum foil tape smoothed over really tight, and sprayed with colour match paint. 

I literally once fixed a rust hole in an AP6 regal in that exact spot by doing that.

You didn't fix it, by the way.

Oh you guys.

Is using drum brakes a couple of times enough to set them in place to adjust the handbrake? I recall moons ago being told to not adjust handbrake till drums had been used. Yes I could google, yes i'm a diddle finger mechanic.

I usually tweak the handbrake so it drags, go for a thrash around the block a couple of times hard on the brakes then tweak again.

Sweet thanks. 

Handbrake would be handy before I hit the road, so they are potentially centered after I bled the whole lot then. Just saves me having the chock that thing erryday. Will give those methods a hoon.
