Awww isn't it cute? it's like an engine, but smaller :D
Seriously though, looks excellent Dan. It's gonna be perfect when finished.

You can even get in there with the engine and work on it! Before now I’ve sat on the slam panel with my legs down each side of the front of the engine to work. Saves leaning over!

Brake servo and master cylinder are both now installed too. Stupidly easy without a dash in the way.
I’ve sorted the old brake pipes, I’ve layed them out next to the car to see how they went (I’d forgotten!), pretty simple really.
The new line kit has a number tag on each length of line. You cross reference that number to a list supplied in the kit and it tells you exactly where that line is for. Looks a piece of piss to do tbh. I’ve offered the new up to the old lines and they’re all present and correct. There’s an odd mix of metric and imperial unions on these cars, again all these are new and ready fixed onto the ready flared pipes, all of them are in the correct places. Seems like a good kit so far.
Only thing not included is the 3 way splitter that bolts to the inner drivers side wing under the bonnet. There’s no valves or anything on this car. 1 port on the master cylinder does the two front brakes via the 3 way splitter. The other port on the master cylinder goes under the car to one rear wheel cylinder, then another brake line comes off the bleed nipple port of the wheel cylinder, across the axle to the other wheel cylinder which has its bleed nipple in place as usual. Easy and simple!
Just need a set of three brake hoses first.
