240Z – Parking Brake Refurbish

While I had the differential, half shafts and drive shaft out of the car, it seemed like an ideal time to clean, inspect and refurbish the parking brake hardware.  All components were visually inspected and found to be in good working order.  I removed, cleaned and re-plated all the components.

I disassembled all the parts, cleaned and zinc plated them.
