    It´s great you are doing all the brake system, taking the advantage of this time, while the engine is coming. It´s an important system in the car and it seems it had been pretty neglected.

    Another update from Jose!

    Took the M/C apart today and although it had a lot of corrosion and gunk inside I was able to clean and bead blaster it with good results. The parts I was concerned about yesterday were in good shape.



    Lots of cleaning on both the M/C and the booster canister, both got painted semi gloss black on one side waiting for it to dry to get the rest.



    The vacuum valve rubber valve was in good shape, clean and tested good.



    Not much beside the disassembling, cleaning and painting.



    I will try to get the M/C hopefully today if not maybe tomorrow. As for the power piston that one will be tackled once everything is back on the M/C, so more to come.

    For the weatherstripping, try Rubber the Right Way. USA Parts Supply, Caddy Daddy, Arizona Vintage Parts, and Cadillacs Only should be able to supply you with trim and other parts.

    Glad to see you're still hanging in there! Restoring these cars is truely a labor of love, even when you want to kill them for being uncooperative!

    I have a question for the OP. When you're taking old rusted bolts out, whats the best method you have found to help prevent breaking them or threads?

    Fender,

    Try Bolt Buster on 630-762-3865. I saw these demonstrated at SEMA last November and the product looks the duck's guts. Or service@boltbusterinc.com.

    Regards from Down Under.

    I like to use a product called kroil. If you know in advance you are going to be working on something prone to breaking, like brake lines or manifold bolts, then start soaking them in the penetrating oil a few days before you work on it, once or twice a day, until you are ready. Has worked well for me.

    Very cool. Never saw that before. It really gives it a neat look.
    Much better, and also better protection for the metal under it.

    And protecting the metal is the most important part!

    What a great idea! Nice tip for anyone with a burnt paint job looking for a bridge that preserves the car until a new paint job is in the cards. Smart thinking!
