Ah yes, Collier Motors, some interesting stuff there.

In the mean time, the final piece of the brake puzzle was to rebuild the callipers, stripped four of them and only managed to find one usable piston.



While waiting for some new pistons to come in from the US, I got the housings cleaned up and painted:



Then did the final assembly with the new pistons, new brake pads and lines, added fluid and bled the system.



Along with the new hard lines, master cylinder and rear wheel cylinders that have been installed previously, I hope that it will stop now.

As mentioned elsewhere, I've entered the car in Apocalaps next weekend, so it's going to be a busy week. Sorting out a fuel tank is likely to be the biggest hurdle at this stage, so there is a good chance I will be substituting another car.
