If asked before I'm sorry, I tried to search but didn't seem to find much. Is anyone aware of compatible or working systems to upgrade my manual brakes when the time comes? I saw Macs Auto had a system but seems permanent out. I've seen the hydro boosts but all I can find. Thanks!

I have a booster and the spacer that goes behind the dash. The booster needs restored (it functioned just doesn't look pretty) and you would need to fashion a gasket between the booster and fire wall. I converted my car to standard brakes this winter.

You will also need to drill and weld in a new pin for the brake push rod on the brake pedal. Its a pretty large undertaking, and honestly my brakes now feel very similar as they did to boosted
