    Looks great! I think I remember this car from a thread last year. I think this car is from New Mexico originally. Perfect car to refurbish!

    I just installed these in my 79 yesterday. LMR's and they look, fit and function well!

    I was able to take the old accumulator to a hydraulic hose shop and they was able to use my old one and put a new hose on.

    Very cool... I just fixed / re-charged my daughter's ride last week (not a Mustang).

    I need to do this to my 82 GT someday in the future.

    Flush that 37 year old tar out of the system....you'll be amazed at how the brakes will firm up with a full flush & bleed with fresh fluid. I did mine last year for the first time since 1982....wow what a difference!

    Also interesting to your wire boots at the cap end being red....mine are black.

    Your absolutely correct. There was so much sludge in there. If I didnít already buy it I think I would have flushed it out and kept rolling with the original.
