Replaced rear axle with D35 (to avoid rebuilding bearings and seals)

this one is at least smooth and very quiet compared to what we were dealing with!


replaced L rear wheel cylinder 

new brake drums

reused shoes and springs that were on the donor D35 

new rear shocks replaced originals - from donor (Andy)


new left rear parking brake line - parking brake now works!
