BE VERY CAREFULL !!!

One side at a time and chock your front wheels!!

Fifteen hundred kilograms of Calibra on your bonce is really gonna ruin you day if it rolls. :'( :'(

No hand brake on  the front remember!

Also handbrake shoes will take some time to bed in and the handbrake is likely to need adjusting again.
so leave the car in first gear when parking for the first few weeks if you live or park the car on a slope.

Hope that helps :) :)

just aquick but in. make sure the slack adjuster is well backed off b4 you pull the disc off. we have had 3 callys where the shoes have been binding and tried to come with the drum, resulting in the shoe retaining pins pulling through the backplates irgo new back plates they are not very expensive but changing them normally means new rear bearings ( a right ballache and very expensive) by design the backplates rust very thin with age the 3 cally.s were a K plate and 2 L plates
