Good Evening Gents,
Long time follower and just getting myself setup into this terrific site and finally trying to make some real progress on my FC project that I purchased back in 2004. I'll create a topic in the resto page once I work out how to post pics n all. 
So what I'm after is the two handbrake pulleys with the lower bracket that mounts to the sub-frame if anyone can help me out or provide myself alternative options to suit.

cheers Paul

Here is a pic of the scuff plates.
Full straight set with only some surface rust.
I can take more pics for interested members.

Ken's right.  Fortunately the inverse relationship between paint quality and hammer impulse worked to my advantage.

The method I use is along those lines with a big hammer, however, Iíve found that the willingness to swing hard decreases the closer you get to painted surfaces.
The method I use is with a helper. Get helper to hold an old rear axle against the bolt (when using a big hammer, always get helper to do the holding).
Then hit the axle very firmly with sledge hammer. (Helps if you have removed the wheel studs)
Bolts come out easily.

Grab an oxy or heat gun and apply heat, then bash them out. They are a bugger but will come out eventually.

You can buy new ones if you damage it, but as rob says BFH will get a result. Just crack the nut one revolution and hit the thing hard.

Get the back of the car a long way off the ground, clamp a heavy lump of metal to the inside spring hanger, make use of a sledgehammer, and lay into it good and proper -

Found Object (if the link doesn't work, go to reply 173 in the thread)

If you have an oxy, heat the inside spring hanger until it's cherry red.
