Spent my 2 weeks off work deleting the brake booster and doing some housekeeping on the wiring. Still have a lot of housekeeping on the wiring to do, but it was a start.

Went from the OEM setup to a system straight from a similar MX5. Dual masters with different size bore, remote reservoirs and adjustable bias

The new boosterless setup. First road test was SCARY, as put the foot on the brakes and NOTHING, only skid marks left were, well you guess :) However after about 6 or so small runs, the brakes were very linear, push HARDER to stop FASTER.

Moved all the Halech stuff to under the passenger seat area. This way it is easy to get at and allowed the glovebox area to also be tidied up.
