In the dirt car world, the racers I hung with would tell a master cylinder manufacture the caliper used and rotor dia. and car weight we were using and the pedal measurements. We would measure the pedal length and distance from pedal pivot to master cylinder push rod. We would also give them a driver preference regarding feel, hard, medium, soft. They would recommend a master cylinder diameter and brake line size. I don't remember them being wrong.

I hosted a tech session for my local club, taking a little time away from the project to clean the shop. I've been a bit schizophrenic on it since, messing with various bits mostly prepping for the next steps. I cleaned up the bumper mounts taken from the parts car as well as the inner front fenders and started striping away the edges of the old floors that I left when I cut them out.
After some time thinking about engine mounts, looking at the inner fenders to decide what I'm gonna use and not use, plus how to go about the rust repairs and reshaping, I started the rust repair on the left side

Rob,

1 piece or 2?
Great work regardless.

Bill.

2 pieces, the top has a slight arc where the fender bolts on and I needed to shrink it so it's split through the hole.
I started re-shaping it to fit the rails.

The left inner fender is all tacked together ready for final welding. I'll wait until I get the other side this far before I finish welding. It should make it a bit easier to duplicate what I did on this side seeing my cut lines.
The second pic is the new one along side the original one I cut out of the car for reference as to how much it changed.
