    Remote Reservoirs

    I have the standard Wilwood master cylinders that came with my car but I would like to move the reservoirs over to the LS fender to avoid the mess involved with bleeding and filling the old ones.(whew!) Anyway, is there a trick way to do this without going to the "remote master cylinder" and remote kit that Wilwood sells? I can fab all the hoses I would need but coming out of the old reservoir without looking like crap is the problem. Thanks in advance.

    I understand what you are saying, and a remote reservoir would be a good solution. However, I'm using a funnel with a flexible end that does the trick. That and a rag under the m/c makes it a lot easier.

    Right now I'm using a old hypoid oil squirt bottle with a hose attached, but brake fluid and paint don't get along well and I figure it's just a matter of time before I get bit. I've even considered drilling and tapping the old masters and running a hose up to a remote but right now I'm open to suggestions.
