Good news Chopper. Let's get him on Dancing With the Scars! ::)

Thanks for the well wishes, guys. He's a very lucky boy, and he knows it.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Today I had to replace a crimped brake line and you know what that means, bleed the brakes.  If you have a setup like mine, the master is under the floor.  I am not a fan of firewall clutter, but I did decide to install this remote reservoir.  Going to use braider 4an line to plum it.

I have that same 2 reservoir , but as a 3 because I am using one as a clutch reservoir.  You can make that reservoir disappear visually by getting it powder coated a dark maroon, or a satin black.  Also use black AN-4 fittings unless they are going thru the firewall and the aeroquip hose is going hidden behind the firewall.  You can get black cloth covered aeroquip hose from RUSSELL.

Question, why is it mounted on the passenger side of the firewall ???
2nd question, the firewall  center recess looks very deep, have you altered it ??

Mike,

I mounted it there because the fuse block and wiring are behind the firewall on the drivers side.  It also had that firewall when I got it.

Thanks for the suggestions about color and hose...

also if you want to run the silver braided stainless but want to make it disappear, get a roll of shrink tubing to cover it...


I also found somebody on ebay 6 months ago who was selling braided stainless but with red, black, blue coating too it.

I bought 2 lengths to do the frame to the calipers.  Pretty sure they offer it in many lengths ?

mike lynchThanks Mike, do you think the location of the reservoir looks bad.  The firewall has a recessed section installed in the center.

I think it looks fine, caught my attention because it was on pass side, unusual.  But like you say all your wiring is on drivers side, opposite to whats normal ???

 Being right handed I would think it would be easier to have wiring on right for getting to panel and connections.  But that's me.   I have a plywood panel I will attach to the firewall with construction adhesive for the wiring panel and wire looms.

Also if one has a dash glove box on right hand side , that gets in the way of access.  Problems problems.

Was thinking on your firewall metal panel when I first saw it........oh, somebody either made a new center and deeper or they found a small wheelbarrow and used that ?   Main thing is suits the car.

The teardrop has official power now.
Used a charger adapter for a boat and wired up 2 extension cords (3 plugs each , 2 usb outlets).
One inside and the other in the galley.
Power, what's that ?  ;D
