Well, it is not a real project, only a bigger maintenance.
My plan:
1. drive belt change - I don't know the mileage of this, because my speedometer cable's broken some years ago...
2. brake pads change - these are very worn, although last time I bought Malossi pads
3. brake disc change - I didn't check it with tools, but it seems too worn and there is a ridge at the rim
4. brake shoes replacement - it's time to change them
5. speedometer cable replacement - I want to know my speed
6. correct my plasti dip paint - some places the plasti dip scratched and worn, the gasoline destroyed it, the oil made black spots

First, I changed the belt. Although, the previous belt was more than 3 years old, it seems good.

The next was the change of the brake disc. First, it didn't seem too hard, but when I tried to remove the wheel hub, I realised, maybe I couldn't do that. The Haynes recommend to use a washer, but I didn't have the correct size. At last I tried with two c-clip and a block of wood. I didn't believe the succes, but worked! Then I changed the disc and put back the hub and the wheel. The new disc is silent and shiny. I changed the worn pads too. Now, everything is awesome.

I bought new brake shoes too. I bought my Vespa in 2014, but I haven't changed the shoes. I tought, this is the perfect time for this. But I realised, the old is almost as thick, like the new one. At last I changed it, who knows...
