    Could you do the master cylinders inside the cab?

    Kinda like this?

    What setup are you rocking John?

    I'm already consider a set of Tilton pedals as a solution, but I like the idea of the power booster rather than manual brakes. I'd have to find a way to mount my Viper pedal pads but that's no big deal...

    Then I'd probably hang one of these on the firewall...

    I have time to figure it out. I'm not yet certain I can't make my Viper stuff work, hoping I can because I want to put in my Viper electric pedals...

    Check out some of the floor mount pedals. Someone has them mated to a hydraboost, I think it is Preston's mustang.

    Thanks for that Nate. I'll take a closer look and see what I can make work. How is your build coming, any progress?

    Holy Moses this is an insane build-Will, that's some amazing bit of fab you've accomplished here. Are you into drafting and design or structures engineering of some kind?

    Thank you txstang. In answer to your question, nope. None of the above, just a guy with a vision, a bit of time to research and more time to learn, make, correct, and learn from mistakes along the way.

    Sweetazz-just thought maybe you had a technical job with the CAD-like illustration a couple pages back.

    Nope, although TurboCad is pretty cheap and relatively intuitive. Not as functional as SolidWorks, which I'd love to get my hands on...

    Will,
    What's the latest? I've been lurking here since Day 1 and it's like Christmas morning every time you post updates lol. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for checking in and for the kind words Mike. Unfortunately I haven't done much in a while, nor been on the forum, because I've been very busy with work. I've been travelling a while and plan to get back on the car mid-end July when I return. I am more or less done with major fab work, when I left I was beginning to build my rotisserie so I can roll the car over to do the final welding on the bottom of the chassis. Hope to get that finished up quickly when I return. Then I'll probably move on to beginning body work.

    I'm jealous! Just read the whole build and I'm jealous. I think maybe I should drop my dart off in your garage for a little while.

    ^^^

    x2, inquiring minds want to know_-_-_...

    Personally I would like an update on the I.S.I.S install.

    Not so much an 'up and running' debug, as the 'fit and fitment'
    or--- placement --- in Your build?

    P.s, My Manners (humble apologies),

    Superlative Vision & Build, Thank You for the posts.

    I hope there is more to come!
