Only surface rust so gave it a good sanding and a couple of coats of Hydrate 80. Sprayed it with some Satin black metal paint Image

And fitted back on the car with a new master cylinder, looking much better. Took the drivers seat out this time to make things a bit easier to fit the nuts up behind the pedals. Image

Any tips for getting the brake reservoir into the master cylinder? I know it ‘pushes in’ but hell it’s tight! Tried a bit of brake fluid as lube but still no joy.

Seeing as the engine is out I thought I’d take a look at the inner CV joints...a touch worn after 179k Image
