I install an additional brake fluid reservoir which will feed the brake fluid to the 2 master cylinders . This will enable me to keep a check on the fluid level without having to disassemble any of the car to get to the master cylinders on the pedal assembly .

I then fabricate a mounting plate for the fuel surge tank , EFI fuel pump & Carter lift pump

the front calipers are alloy Brembo from an early 911 Porsche & the rear calipers are going to be standard superbug twin-pin

I split the front alloy Brembo calipers to remove the bakelite spacer blocks so that I can use them on the solid discs , as these calipers were traditionally used on ventilated discs . It is a very good thing that I did pull them apart as the person who assembled them had pinched one of the seals & they would have certainly leaked

the alloy Bremo calipers are installed and fit perfectly with the solid front brake discs . These calipers bolt directly to the type-3 stub-axle assemblies without any adaptor plates

yeh I know Simon , I have been a bit slack with this one as I have been very busy helping Ben , Chris & Cindy with their cars and also the new engine build for the oval (not to mention a long pointy thing that arrived from US) ..... I should have had this car on the track long before now , but it wont be too far away . I am nearly ready to strip the entire car for powdercoating / detailing , then back together it goes for the final build .

Thanks Marcus , we are now preparing Ben Ford' supercharged drag bug for Warwick while I am working on DTTF ..... Bens bug made 332hp@ 4500rpm at the wheels and wont breath after that . We are remaking his supercharger manifolds for better flow ..... but I want to stay working on DTTF until it makes noise and is finally on the track !!
Last night Dean & I sorted out what fuel fittings & hose we need up front , I then installed the clutch slave cylinder , then installed the new turbo ready for exhaust connection

Thank you so much for sharing just how much work goes into preparing a car like this. It's an overwhelming task! Best of luck in getting it ready on time. I look forward to some footage of it running.
