Id like to know on the booster also, I have a drum rear in the car, but I also have a 80 rear disc rear. I have read what a pain the OE rear disc are. I was wondering which booster/master cyl to use with the same conversion kit.

Leigh,

As said above it's a Stainless Steel Brakes Master and has it's own valve to adjust bias. We are still not sure about the best way to approach the component compatibility yet and need to do more research.

To be honest, wish I could help but not sure yet if we got it right component wise. When we figure it out, I will post the results

Update,

Kinda took a bit of a break from the T/A over the holidays but did hang one fender and get the new dash painted.

Still have to go back and loosen the suspension with more weight on the nose, then drop it like a rock!

MMMMM how did it work out for you,that glash polishing stuff didnt really work out for me as i hoped.i bought a set of t-tops for my car beacuse my others were toast,i noticed the had a part of the vin etched into one corner of the glass for theft safty,i removed it the best i could but i also tryed polish all the glass on one and its ok but i think i should have taken more time,i windex the other no polish and side buy side they look real close to the same ,scratches and all,i wish i could remember the name o that polish i used .

Hey Richduty.I see you have gold t tops.Did you by chance pick up that y88 4 spd that was priced to sell on here about a week ago? I saw it listed and then it disappeared.Just curious as it is on my list when time and money align.

I'll try my best to answer this. The product is Cerium Oxide and I think the polishing pad comes with it. Try googling the company C.R. Lawrence which may have it. The product is a powder. You dip the polishing pad in water, then in the Cerium Oxide, then go to town on the glass.
