CJ5 rear brake shoes

About time I fitted some new brakeshoes to the old CJ. Amazing how quickly brakeshoes wear out in mud. I'm sure these lasted less than 5000kms...
 Old shoes came off easily. The clips fixing the shoes to the backplate had vanished completely
 Good thing I ordered new clips and springs with the shoes
Using plastic tape to protect the new shoes while mounting them. After this it's just a matter of removing the tape and refitting the cleaned up drums and we're ready to play!
