The fight continues

The rear brakes are back on with new shoes and some new hardware.  I used most of what was on the car because it was still good stuff.

The drums are torqued down, cotter pinned and ready to go...although I didn't install the tires as I did one last brake bleed and discovered that there is a tremendous amount of fade in the pedal in spite of the fact that there are no leaks in the system and the rear shoes are adjusted.  The fluid is clear and no bubbles were present in the bleed.  I'm going to try one more bleed with slightly higher pressure to see if there's air stuck somewhere.  If that doesn't work, then the master cylinder is going to get swapped.

I'm way too close to give up now...
