In the last picture of the "HOW TO" is that with the clutch pedal down or up?

It's up, when you install the L shaped piece your setting your pedal height.
Or are you talking about the slave and fork picture? If it looks funny its because the TOB isn't engaged yet.

doing mine right now..

mine is RHD so its slightly different.. the original hard pipe is REALLY long and goes behind all the other hard pipes so I think its going to be bent when coming off oh well

first question, do you think a carbide grinder for a dremel will be enough to get those nubs off?

It will probably take a lot longer to do it that way. Also some people have been having good success with the rocking method.

ok the bendy/wiggle method was a fail for me..

i just snapped the stud in half...

maybe they put extra effort on my spot welds haha

so now I have to remove my brake booster and drill the ****** out from the backside...

Hollywood - is it best to drain the brake master before unhooking the brake lines? or will veyr little fluid come out if I just unscrew them?
