Here's the master cylinder I have, it came out of a 1993 1.8 CVH CFi. I tried to measure it and it looks like roughly 41mm but it's hard to be sure as the bit at the top isnt the same as the bit at the bottom so to speak. If possible I would prefer the throttle in 5mm as well as the brake & clutch. I know it's probly overkill but it'd be a right pain to remake at a later date if it bent / broke.

Its totally down to personal preference but the 3mm throttle pedal seems totally fine as you dont apply anywhere near the pressure you do to the clutch or brake

its the bit on the far left we are intersted in from what i can see its got a step in it so its a (41mm) big hole type there are ones with difrent outlet postions and as i said i have a throttle peddal in 5mm spare i can put in your kit just ad yourself to the list with a note if you want it

im not doing any 5mm throttles as i cant get anywhere to do less than 10 sets and i dont want to f**k the guy about its been hard enough to get anyone to do a quote to do the job and i am not doing this for profit just so i can get a set for my own car!

*update*
i have new quote in for box with 5mm thick clutch arm all kits will have this and new price is 26+vat each with no postage (will sort for as cheap as poss)
people have been asking if i can get plate bent? i have the bottom and side bits as seprate flat plate so you weld together at required angles as most of us dont have a bender and some may wish to weld the backplate stright into bulkhead area for extra strength

im needing some of them c shape bits that go on the roll bar cross bar as well for the belt mount tubes 5 set of 4

Are the set of 4 for 5 quid the things that get tapped to that odd imperial thread for the top of the seat belt harness to bolt into?

well for a start its baz-r! welcome to the site
what you need to do is cut and paste the list into a new post and add your name to it
it would also be a real good idea to remove your email address buy using the edit button on your last as you never know who or what its going to be used for in the internet!
