Update on MK8(10)

Good Morning

The foot box on the MK8(10) has some surface rust on it.  So removed the pedal assembly, master cylinders etc. Put the assembly in the glass bead blast cabinet and cleaned up all surfaces awaiting new paint or powder coating, haven’t decided yet. The dead pedal was broken off so fabricated a new one and welded on.

Began rebuilding the master cylinders.  I am used to having Girling 0.75″ rear brake and 0.625″ front brake masters but this car is 0.70″ and 0.625 .  Just an observation.  Was able to rebuild the masters with a light hone job and new Girling repair kits.

Rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder and reinstalled.

Today finish the master cylinders, paint the pedal assembly and return to the completion of the battery cover on the MK10
