More car stuff

As we get ready to go to DC to see and hear Pope Benedict XVI, we have preparations to make: a brake job on the big van.

With my brother helping we successfully took everything apart-but found it needed more than new pads. One of the rotors (too thin to turn) had deep grooves. The other rotor looks okay.

Trying to order the correct rotor was a challenge. They wanted us to open the rear drum brakes to make measurements to determine the correct front rotor. Added to that, two stripped caliper bolts, and well you get the idea, it is one of those simple jobs turned into a project.

We'll get it done-hopefully today.

Oremus pro invicem!
