brake remote fit booster to save room tip

hi all use of this will allow servo assisted (pas) booster brakes but saves under hood space
having googled some brake upgrades using various boosters (servo,s) i thought i would post this.

various cars came with a remote booster in europe i am not sure about in usa but you CAN still buy these new /used at a very reasonable cost i will try to post up vendors though i allways prefer the junkyard aproach.

sunbeam stilleto,californian (rear engined but booster (servo) mounted in front trunk area nice and clean!)
sunbeam rapier
rover p6
lotus mk1 escort
lotus mk1 cortina
rover p6
hillman hunter?  google u.s versions (plymouth cricket?)  some of these cars are in usa anyway
reliant scimitar

you can fit this booster anywhere you have more space! (trunk ,inside side of firewall, behind glovebox etc anywhere!) just plumb it into your brakes hydaulic system  and vac hose with the basic 2 circuit mc on the firewall
(i have done this and simply shortened the pushrod)
