Scarebird Rear Disc Kit

Posted on: Saturday March 25, 2017

This is the guts of a forum post I made a few weeks ago. It's time to start writing it up here: When I recovered my car a few years ago (I say 'recovered' cause it's hardly a restoration) I re vamped the brakes. Cleaned the lines, replaced the rear brake cylinders, replaced all the hoses, replaced all seals in MC ... etc. It was basically new from one end to the other. After sitting for a while recently I was having an issue with the rear brakes binding. It would take a few ks for them to...

Scarebird Kit Arrived

Posted on: Saturday March 25, 2017

I've been away for 3 weeks and the kit arrived while I was away. I have to source some parts locally and have hit a minor snag. Two main parts Hyundai Sonata Rear discs? No problem, easy replacement part about $80 Aus. Festiva Front Calipers? Not so much. Too early, not available (except for OEM) new. So 2nd hand.

Trying Out The Modified Lever.

Posted on: Friday May 4, 2012

Today I polished the ball and the pivot of the lever. Used a piece of abrasive foam to make sure there were no rough patches and then buffed it on a cloth wheel in the drill press. This is to make sure the action is as smooth as possible. I then attached the remote control unit and assembled the lever in the remote control unit with a smear of vaso' around the pivot.
