sonett - installing rebuilt clutch master cylinder and brake master cylinder

Lots of parts on the car got rusty during Sandy. The clutch master cylinder was completly siezed up and would not budge. The brake master cylinder worked but looked terrible.

Replacements are not available, new, used, refurb, anything.

I ended up having a place called WhitePost restorations in Virginia rebuild them. They bore out the cylinders, install a new brass sleave, replace all the rubber seals, and sand blast / paint them. Best part is they come with a lifetime warranty.

I am very happy with the results. I would work with White Post again.
