In fractured sessions, I painted the reservoir strap and mounted it with the original lines that I have now mangled to shit.
All of the feed lines are installed, brake fluid is in the fill and has made it to 3 of the 4 calipers. The brakes are not bled yet - I need to get more fluid to do so - but there's blood in the veins and nothing is leaking. The true test will be once the calipers are bled and pressure is applied. But, for now, I'll take the 2nd place trophy and go to bed happy with where I am right now.
I am tempted to try to align the steering box a bit better on the beam but there's also a part of me that just wants to bleed the brakes, get the car back on tires and work on the alignment. Then install the parking brake cables...and work on the engine tune. Those goals seem a bit far away but I'll keep chipping away at this until it's done.
