February 20, 2007 - Assembly continues.
And here's where things start to get interesting. The brake booster and master cylinder are from a Miata with the larger "Sport" brakes. They should give a firmer pedal and are well suited to our big brake setup. The proportioning valve is obviously mounted in a different place on our 1995 as opposed to the 2005 that donated the master so we'll have to deal with that. Actually, it's not a proportioning valve at all as this particular car used the ABS instead. This sort of interchange is fun.
We'll have our own cockpit-adjustable proportioning valve which will involve bending and running some new brake lines anyhow.
