Polson's XF Wagon - Version 2

I should check the brakes on Lucy while shes apart.
Been driving her for round 3 years and never looked at them.
Probably not a bad idea. Better to look at them and see they're low than brake one day and hear that horrible metal on metal screeching.
What brand are the rotors?

looks like a back road near Longford... probably heaps of places do though
Westbury actually, but you're definitely right, especially with the fog, plenty of places look similar

Long time between updates

 

Nothing has really changed, currently it's at a bodywork/restoration specialist getting the front bar repaired/painted, along with the scratch in the front passenger door fixed and the small bit of rust in the lower RHR quarter cut out and replaced. All going well I'll pick it up on Monday.

Got a new transmission pan to go on soon, so gave it a quick coat of black paint.

Who can spot the difference between this one and any other Falcon BW35/40/51 pan?

Bonus points if you guess what car it came from 5f9af8c75136e2fbd982aaebbeb11f87.jpg8516ec756c577ae94a785af73e3ec6b3.jpg292e948f6224b850dff24dfb891a4142.jpg

Wagon went into the mechanic yesterday for new rear pads, trans fluid/pan change, trans band adjustment and oil change (because why not whilst they had it up on a hoist)

Box seems to be a little quieter on downshifts now ( had some clunks before), and rear pads have friction material now - old ones were about 1mm

Glad I didn't attempt the rear pads - apparently both pistons had seized a bit and didn't want to wind back in easily, which I didn't expect as the calipers are only a year old.

Those calipers are pretty annoying. if the calipers were only a year old, why was there only 1mm of pad left? that is probably more the reason they were tight.

I didn't put new pads on when the new calipers were fitted last year. I'd say the pads would be 3 or 4 years old
