for a one time hobby guy they will work. but if you have never worked in a shop before I would suggest that you get the how to paint your car DVD from Eastwood. there are a lot of hints on it. just remember is is geared to selling you Eastwood tools. some of which are harbor fright painted blue. but I was for real when I sad get a decent car cover for it it the best thing you can do for a outside car. I had on over this 53 for 10 years before I moved it inside.

I was asked to post a picture of my master cylinder / booster. Was able to take a new picture yesterday. Here it is. Also I was curious, is this the original floormat or an aftermarket that was placed in the passenger coach area?

I'm inclined to think its original, as it seems to break rather easily. Its not brittle, but the torn part tears more very easily. Realized this when I was drying some water back there from all the recent rain and it was wet under the mat. I picked the mat up and set it out to dry and that little torn bit almost ripped all the way off.

a after market the original was gray and would have the MM logo on it. they are a rare bird. that master cylinder is not the correct one for the CC the lines should come out on the left.

Should have also painted the booster, or sent it out for gold iridite plating.

Good to know about the mat. Now I'm not too worried about the mat if its just an aftermarket

yes but I had the epoxy mixed up, and it was a use it or loose it thing. that stuff goes a long way. don't remember whose car I was using it one when we did the quick toss the hood up and paint trick. to use it up. a acid brush works great to spread it around. this booster was painted black from the factory.
