Some impressive results from the saw . I played around with mine with...
I’m going to give it a shot also! Looks faster than the way I did it.
That is slick Fastcar. Are you using just one of those cheap tile cutters? I have one of those that the blade just runs in the water bath.
I used the diamond router bit with a lot of water. It took me about an hour to cut the windshield. I forget what grit bit I used , but I think it...

I figure I would give an update.
I put on 2 different boosters. Both came from different year camaros I had in the garage 80's and 90's. I put...
These aftermarket boosters seem to be hit or miss. I think I have a miss with this one.
The booster acts like it is working. The pedal drops when you start the car. The master cylinder is the s10 one that came off the donor car.
I will add that I have about 17" of vacum.
It has a tune port small block Chevy. Getting vacuum from the back of the manifold. Will try and post pics.
I am having a problem with my brakes, but not sure if its the booster. I have an aftermarket dual diaphragm booster on my truck (s10 ad truck...
