Rapier Fastback Rear Drum Brakes


Donation Time
Hello, over the last week, I've revived my long stored Rapier Fastback. New points/condenser, brake & clutch bleed, wiring repairs, and it is ticking over well and going on short drives.

I am rebuilding the rear brakes, as the previous owner completely botched the job, resulting in mangled springs and a non functioning parking brake. Does anyone have a photo of an assembled Fastback rear drum brake assembly, with the dual piston later rear slave cylinder?

Also, I'm looking for a Factory Service and Parts manual, the Clymer that came with the car leaves a lot to be desired.
