Coolant pipe modification = thumbs up!

Whered you get the piping itself? Did you custom bend it?

Made some more progress. Finished mounting the rear calipers and the master cylinder reservoir. That's when I realized how dusty the car is

I did not like the hose clamp holding the master cylinder together so I made a bracket up. I just have to modify the bolt it will look much cleaner.

Brakes are bled, had one leak at the r. front caliper. Easy fix! I will probably bleed them once more the pedal still feels a little soft. I was able to check all the gears after getting the clutch bleed also. Reverse was the only gear I could not get it into. Another easy fix with a cable adjustment.

I love the little bracket you made. When I zoomed in on it I noticed you used some ptfe tape on your threads. I would watch for leaks because brake fluid will break it down. I used permatex seal n lock and it's designed for hydraulic fittings and I used it on the master cylinder and intercooler with no leaks yet.

At the point of installing them. The beer won I was tired of looking for the permatex.

Parking brakes are done other than maybe an adjustment down the road.

I ran the cables under the engine. I attached them with a P clamp ate rear of the sub frame. I need one more larger clamp to mount to the bottom of the engine where you can see the uncut zip tie.
