Mark,.Judging by the fuzz surrounding the hole, it looks like your master cylinder is going through puberty.
Love the stuff you come up with. You are truly one of a kind....
They coat everything with vegetable oil, no kidding....Then vacuum seal the parts in a bag and that is why it looked like that out of the bag. Little solvent cleaning and some boeshild t9 did the trick!
MWNation, been checking in on your restoration from time to time.
I'm both glad and grateful someone in our hobby is as detail oriented as you are.
I now consider myself to be a complete hacker, or I just have the attention span of a gnat. I can get pretty fussy doing carb work, and component assembly, but your level is beyond what most would expect.
As usual, I appreciate the detail. Keep up the good work! You are correct, the repop VR are not even close to originals. Was your original done with red lettering?
There are many variations in the lettering from color and font size during the 1969 production year at LR. I do know that by the time the A12 were in production, it was yellow with a specific font size.
