Re: [T3] a couple of Brake questions

<<  I acquired a dual-circuit reservoir to go with the dual-circuit 
 master -- this allows you to see which of the circuits is leaking before 
 it quits, which I think is important...
... the reservoir is substantially 
 larger as well, so I relocated the reservoir to a more-like-late-stock 
 location at the rear of the boot (near the steering column) and created 
 a new path for the feed lines through the fender well. >>

I went this route when I did my Notch, but I used 2 meters of blue hose 
instead. This keeps ANY steel induced rust out of the master cylinder, by 
eliminating it from the system. I placed mine in the stock for 68 to 70 location 
though. It worked out nicely for me, and it kept the reservoir out of the spring 
along the back wall (71 and later doesn't use this style of spring). I realize 
any brake fluid spillage can cause the inner fender to rust, but being able to 
access it makes up for the potential future rust spot.
