    Personally I prefer pressure bleeding from the calipers and up. That way you don't have to force gravity. Air bubbles like to travel upwards. On a few occasions with empty systems, that's that has...

    Regarding tension... I understand John's point, but that tension must be negligible compared to the load on the sway bar when braking, as seen in the video.

    [Suspension] My take on Lower control arm brace

    Wow, that video is an eye opener! Where will you attach the brace ? To the frame? And how will you achieve a straight line of suspension travel, the brace being a radius arm (in effect).

    [Engine] Coolant reservoir

    Hi,

    I don't fancy the stainless steel aftermarket reservoir for various reasons.

    But long story short, what are my options? My old one is crumbling and soon to return to Mother Earth.

    [Wanted] WTB: parking /hand brake lever

    My project car is missing the complete parking brake assembly.

    Was it designed for the Delorean, or did they source it from a different car?

    Regardless, I'd like to buy one.

    Pardon my ignorance, but where can I find more info on this Euro exhaust? Is it the same as the UK exhaust? Is it just a muffler or does it have headers?
    Thanks
