Open spools are famous for locking up the right rear under panic stops. If you already have a posi in it, the drums are probably your problem.

I don't see how you got both drums turned twice and still be within spec's for drum face thickness. The spec's for the thickness is stamped on the outer edge of the drum and anything thinner is shot! You could do better buying new drums as mentioned.
You may be right because when I look at the drum is looks like the inside of the drum it shiny and the outside of the drum doesn't look like it it hitting.
