Stunning car, for me everything a hotrod should be.
Came out proper nice
Time to go ot Tescos 40 miles away for that Essential thing.....................
Well... Im calling it finished.
Brakes finally work after fitting the new master cylinder.
There is a few bits to do. A bit of the roof lining isnt relly how I want it. And the *tail gate* needs a seal.
The motor really wants setting up on a dyno. But it runs ok for now.
These things are never really finished are they?
I stil need to wet sand and buff the paint too... But I have time over this lockdown period.
So now I just wait until we are all allowed out to play again.......
Thanx for watching this project unfold.
On to the next one now I guess???
one man bleeding https://www.rallydesign.co.uk/produc...ducts_id=22088
4th master cylinder arrived and is now fitted.
Social distancing has put a stop to having a mate come round and help bleed the brakes, so I need to convince wifey to give me assistance.
Watch this space ......
If you use the stainless with the flare & collar setup - US style then they never leak. It's the single/double flares that are the issues. Lubing the flare tool with a bit of brake fluid helps make the flares better/smoother I found.
Not a bad garage ornament though.....
Not much happened lately. Not been in the garage for about 6 weeks.
Master cylinder still leaks after the seal kit. So I guess there must be bore damage.
Bought another second hand one, but it isnt a bolt on swap when I get it home. bracket to mount it to the chassis needed modifying.
So Im no further forward with brakes.
Im ordering a new cylinder today. And the stainless brake lines will probably be going too. There are still eaking joints.
Also the banjo bolts to the front calipers leak. I bought new crush washes but cant find them..... No idea where I put them.
The rear flex pipes are also leaking where they go into the slave cylinder.
What a pain in the arse these brakes have bean. I have never had so many issues with brakes.
So Im kinda sick of the sight of it at present. Lost all motivation.
Maybe the new part will help when they turn up.
Looks good Paul. on the beach in May for some race the waves ?
