    Did I understand that you laid up 5 layers of glass fiber and intend to do one more layer? How thick do you expect or desire those panels to be when finished?
    Thank you very much! The fiberglass is about 3-5mm thick when done. Im gonna put Steel reinforcement rods inside the box also. Gonna post video about those to when finished.

    Thank you very much! Yep i think mid january i have the car back from the painter, im now strugling with the rear brakes. I have the ford 9 rear with e brake and really soft pedal.

    I think my piston is too far from the pads and disc and have to adjust those closer.

    The manual says that i should remove the e brake lever nut and lever and put the nut back and rotate the nut until the piston comes out enough to make contact to the disc and pads.

    Can i just rotate the piston instead of removing the lever and gasket from the e brake?
