November 23, 2008, Removed the right outer rocker panel and to my dismay found some major rust deterioration at the jack mount and the most forward area. I also found some rust in the right front wheel well. Additional grinding under the forward forewall revealed rust deterioration left of the master cylinder.

November 16, 2008, Removing the master cylinder took about two hours to remove due to the rusty condition of the brake line connectors. There were three connectors: one from each front wheel and a single line from the rear wheels. The master cylinder (shown) is very rusted and will need to be replaced.

November 9, 2008, Took a couple of hours to remove the pedal board and then the pedal assembly. Thirty years of gunk built up on the pedal assembly along with some rust. Will definitely have to rebuild with new brass bushings, brake and clutch springs, and pedal pads. Will have to perform some rust remediation on the interior pedal assembly area as well as the exterior master cylinder area as shown in the photos. The pictures shown here were taken after the master cylinder was removed on November 16th.
