Yes, some wheel cylinders have always been done this way, just not on VWs 
that I know of. To me, this seems like a more difficult way to go about the 
problem. ATe did it the same way for the same cars.

What's the diameter (round numbers) of the piston in that photo? Was this a 
single or double piston wheel cylinder?
