Default had to whore, its so damn nice out.

Its been a pain staking long detailed process but I think its paid off! its been a long winter and allot of hard work has taken place in swapping shells (The full banana's) current pimp mobile to this clean 83 shell with no sunroof. I have been working on it almost every spare hour I have. Its down to the last few details till its done!

thank you, im really not one for spoilers. But the PO really cut the trunk to fit it so I decided to paint it and run it. I really like how it looks beige, takes a bit of attention off it. The spoiler is a authentic Group A spoiler! not a repop. it needed alot of work when i took it off the car all new threaded inserts ect.

What about trying to fit these fittings in the master and then mounting the reservoir remotely? I was going use these for another project and could kick myself I tossed them when I sold the project. I want to say an older Mitsubishi had them in the Junkyard, or you can always go to NAPA or somewhere that will let you page through a catalog.

The mustang master uses a pretty large nipple size. I was hoping to have a new reservoir made of aluminun to stock volvo size.
