Poject Discussion Forum Rules
This is a new section of where you guys can discuss other users cars. There are just a few rules that need to be followed for this forum to stay nice, clean and easy to use:

1. ONE thread per car. Search the forum for an existing thread before starting your own, things stay tidy that way.
2. Try and stay on topic if you can.
3. Thread titles must be in this format: Username's and the car project

I have created this section so it keeps the build diarys clean and allows the builder of the car to keep us updated a bit like a BLOG so please use this section to disscuss the builders cars and we should see a much easier forum to navigate.

Dropped the wife at work in the car and couldn't get it out of reverse at first. Managed to find a gear and was enough to get the car home. All be it a scary drive through intersections. The pedal was almost going to the floor before taking up. Yet the resorvoir was still full of oil and no sign of any leaks. I bled the line again and got a firm pedal then it went to the floor again. At this point I think it must be the master cylinder. As it's out of the donor car I think I'll replace it anyway. Who knows how old it is, but after driving the car for past two days this is a sudden failure.
