    front brakes done had the brother in law make me some 6mm thick spacers [​IMG] then was look at the scuttle that's rotten.[​IMG] so going to get rid of it first cut the brace away[​IMG] and made a new bracing point [​IMG] then on to the mk2/3 hydraulic clutch [​IMG] [​IMG] braced in place to make sure it will work.[​IMG] [​IMG] Well works off the car. will fit to morrow and find out.
    brake lines came so fitted them.

    Like wise Tristan. Cars not getting ride of me that easily . You just forget how much work takes over your life. I Hope to have it on its wheels today to start the bodywork. Did a bit yesterday and seems there is light rust spots underneath the paint so think I am going to take it back to bare metal.

    It's amazing how much it creeps under healthy looking paint.
    I recently painted the RallyKa, and ended up bare metalling loads of it to get out the rust, even though it looked fine before I started.
