Dave how many pieces behind the 10 1st Article? I want to get in on it, but I don't want to get in line ahead of those whom have a daily driver when I'm many months from having a running car.

Hi Jerry,
The first article for production was given to me yesterday and I approved it for proceeding with production, so I’ll have a bunch of them by next Friday if all goes to plan.

I don't remember if I ever put my name on the list, but I'd like to pick one up as well. I'll need to replace my master cylinder anyway (leaky), so I may as well do this at the same time.

I just installed the brake brace on my 66 and in my case had to enlarge the hole for the brake master bolt so things would line up but not a big deal. As I was tightening things up and looking at the design I didn't think it would be that effective but was wrong as it really makes the pedal less spongy. It feels much more solid but unfortunately I can't test it as it's the middle of the winter here in the midwest. Definitely worth doing so thanks Dave.

Received mine today will update when I get around to installing. Seems like a sensible design with straightforward instructions.

Received mine quickly as well. That said, I haven't even opened the box to look at it yet. :oops:
