Hi Guys

I have read a load of stuff regards the correct size master cylinders for both the brakes and the clutch.

I don't have to MX5 ones so will be starting from scratch, can any body tell me what they are using.

I was looking to use a 0.7 bore for the brakes but am less sure about the clutch.

As always any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Dave

hi Dave I used a 0.7 one as per the Saturn guide but have a stiff pedal , not sure if its the m/c size or the pedal geo that's causing it. When I say stiff it is not unusable but stiffer than your average car.
Regards Gary

Hi Gary, I have read that a lot of builders are using Fiesta MK1 master cylinders, they give very progressive breaking apparently.

I think ill do some more reserch as stopping the car is kind of important. Lol.

Hows your build going? I have 4 weeks before I get my body and theres still loads to do.

haha yes stopping is important , slowing down between corners or stopping to refuel :)
as mentioned earlier I seem to be doing heeps of small jobs, had a day doing stone work restoration today sandstone and lime mortar ... different and got to do a wheel bearing on the daily tomorrow. so no progress this weekend:(
Yes there is plenty to do before you get your body work. Just a thought have you got your vin number yet? as doing it after bodywork is a right royal pain.....
all the best Gary

here is a vin application letter / format edit as required and send to; donna kennet, kits and rebuilds, dvla, Swansea,sa99 1zz.
regards gary

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to request the issue of a Vehicle Identification Number for a newly built vehicle.

I am currently building a kit car (Haynes Roadster) which will need to have an IVA test. After speaking to the VOSA regarding the booking of an IVA test, I have been informed that the vehicle will require a VIN prior to the test.

The VOSA have advised against making up my own 17 digit VIN and suggested that I contact DVLA to have one officially issued.

I am unsure of the process to request a VIN and would like to request that you issue me with a VIN for the vehicle or provide me with the necessary information or application form to be issued with a VIN.

The car I am building is a Haynes Roadster. If necessary I can provide the registration/identification details of the parts used to build the car.

Should you need to contact me regarding my request you can either write to me using the address provided at the top of the letter or you can call me on (TELEPHONE NUMBER HERE).
