Refurbished Di-Acro brake

I bought this brake a while back, but hadn't used it much. Although it's in pretty good shape, it was so grungy that it made it unpleasant to work on. So a couple days ago I started cleaning it up. That little cleaning project turned into a complete disassembly job, cleaning all parts with solvent, stripping all the paint off, priming, painting, removing rust from the bare metal parts, applying rust preventative, and reassembly.

Here's the final product. Whew! I'm glad this is done. It looks great now and should be a pleasure to use.
