I recently bought a '67 TR6C basket case and the rear drum is lightly rust-coated and there is about 1/16" of lining above the shoes.

Is there a source for replacement shoes and can I touch-up the drum myself?

I've come to really appreciate the kind, prompt responses you all provide. This is a top-notch forum : -)

My drums were ok, but the linings were shot.
I had them re-shod but they would not fit.
They were sent back 3 times for linishing until (I think) the company sent back completely new shoes, which fitted. The moral is buy new ones, rather than getting them re-shod. Dont lose the shims if fitted.

I think the thickness of your linings are OK. [1/16th over the rivets?] If the drums are badly grooved they will need to be machined.
