 I've yet to plumb the depths of RVW's rear brakes . However I know they can't possibly be as bad as those on an E type Jaguar . 
These combine Mr Girling's most Mickey Mouse design and crappulous execution  with total in accesibility from above , below and 
either side .It took me 3 days to change the parking brake pads and rebuild the " self adjusting " mechanism. Yes , I know they 
shouldn't wear since they are only used when the disc is at rest , but the friction material  came unbonded and fell off .!!!However 
the E type is still looked on as THE British car of all time, mostly by people who have never owned a 40 year old E type !!

Look who's gone into the cupboad and got out their best anoraks!!

Considering the relative rarity of the job, the fact that they work well and now have been doing so for several decades and how 
lying on one's back under the car is perhaps one of the last real escapes a family man has left over the weekend ...

Is this all we have to whinge about?
