Back to the grind

Brake grind that is...

Rear rotor made it over 188K miles. That's the good news.
Rear rotor rusted on after 8 yrs and 188K miles. That's the bad news.

30 minutes, 3 hammers, an 1 1/2" cheater pipe and half a can of penetrating fluid later (not to mention broken skin on back of hand and a welt halfway up a forearm)...

It came off in the nick tim...e. Right before
a) the cussin' was about to start,
b) the 4 lb Hammer of Thor was to get applied and
c) before lighting it up with MAPP gas.
