Back to the engine bay, the last part of the braking system was the servo and master. I bought a new master as I got it at a very good price and the old one had some ware in the bore so it couldnít be resealed. The brake servo was in good condition, I did a quick inspection, clean and a lick of paint before fitting.

With the servo fitted I could fit the new brake master and measure for the connecting brake lines, See details of exactly what I ordered from Furore Products, keep in mind these are to connect to the Wilwood brake bias control valve. The brake master needs to be removable to access the distributor even though I might go COP in the future.

Apologies for the lack of updates, Lots going on. For the interior heater I played with a few ideas I even ordered a T7 single fan unit but the wrong one was delivered so I decided to make my own. For this I made a steel box to hold a 240mm PC radiator and 4 ports, I then added 2 120mm PC fans with PWM input to control the speed, I will make a control unit for this at a later date. I will be fitting a heated windscreen so I probably wonít bring hot air to the top of the dash, Iím tight for space anyway as all electronics will be behind the dash. Iíll give it a quick lick of paint when spraying other parts.

Two questions

1. Will that provide enough heat and withstand the pressure from the engine.

B. Where are you getting a heated windscreen?

I did a quick trial with it and I'm happy with the heat and flow, its a million times better than standard and half the size. People use the below unit from T7 design and seem to be happy. The rad is rated at 6bar max pressure and has been tested to 8 so pressure shouldn't be an issue. This isn't a cheap Chinese copy.

I purchased the windscreen from Moss a few years ago.

With all the interior welding finished and everything trial assembled the interior could be sprayed. The roof was first then the rear of the floor, rear seats and quarters. The roof had some surface rust which was cleaned off and any pitting treated.

Before moving on to the exterior of the car I decided to blank off the windscreen vents and ashtray hole in the dash rail, I did this for a number of reasons the main being that I couldnít effectively use them as vents and space in the dash is extremely restricted I am also fitting a heated windscreen.

With the interior finished we could move on to the exterior prep, as with the interior I wanted a few good coats of epoxy mastic before final paint to protect as much as possible. We started by sanding back the roof and drip rail then 3 coats of epoxy mastic, this will be sanded again before primer and final paint.
