Big Bertha the Blue Cruiser

Polishing it back should sort the dust out, or de nibbing[/QUOTE

Yeah I will have to give de nibbing a go, was going to wait untill all the panels were on the truck. Then go over the paint with wet and dry followed by the rotary polisher.

The brake issues persist!

the vacuum climbs steady (cheap vacuum tester I bought) then as soon as you touch the brakes the pressure drops right off. This is the second booster in the truck. Both have been old parts but new ones are hard to find. The pedal feel is never hard always sounds like air escaping when depressed. The fluid has never dropped and there are no sighns of leaks.

Looking for advise really, is there something I’m missing or has it become time to part with the hard earned cash and get a new part from Australia
Can’t help with the brake issues, but man, that’s gonna be an “as-new” truck when you’re done, it’s a beautiful job you’ve done. :clap::clap::clap:
