Finally was able to finish the brake overhaul last night. I received the new outer housing and had a weld shop fabricate this old swing points to the housing. I put a fresh coat of paint on it and while it was drying I secured the new brake lines to the frame with rubber line fasteners. Everything fit together as if it were a new Reliable replacement. Filled chamber with DOT3 fluid and going to let gravity do its thing over the weekend. Will finish bleeding the lines Sunday night and my plan is to take it out Monday evening for the 2013 maiden voyage.

Spent about $600 total on the trailer over winter; including new diamond plate skid pads, brake job, new bunks and carpet. Put a fresh coat of wax on the boat and trailer and ready to go.
