Default Frame mounted master cylinder and booster

Ok.so has anyone used the bracket Cpp sells for mounting the mc and booster on the frame? http://www.classicperform.com/Store2/Brakes/5557FMB.htm

After changing my mind for the third time about how I want to do the mc,I now
want to put it under the floor. My concerns are,will it interfere with my headers[patriot full length], and where to mount the remote reservoir,I have a CPP mc with built in proportioning valve already. I also have a 7 inch booster I can use, or maybe stay with manual brakes. If any one has done this any and all input would be appreciated.I searched around on Cpp site for instructions for the mount but couldn`t find any info. If some one has any pictures I would appreciate it.Thanks.

I've seen this done on rat rods and early model Fords & Chevys but a Tri-5. I'll be interested in seeing this done. My MC is the only thing left on my firewall.

Unless it is mounted on the outside of the frame i`d say yes, it will interfere with the headers. That area is very tight on space already.

I tried to do this on my 57, but after trying 2 or 3 different ones, I scrapped the idea. Exhaust problems was one of my hangups. I moved my master cylinder
over to the opposite side of the hood hinge, under the fender.

Hey Greg
Your 57 firewall looks great!
I'm wanting to clean the booster off my firewall.
How did you make the pedal offset work?
Thanks

Did you ever find out if this type of system would work for you? I have thought about it too but have not found any pictures of the set up on a stock frame.

Follow the links to his pictures, he's got some good photos of the brake linkage he fabricated. It's ingenious and I hope to do the same on mine.

You should make a kit for this master cylinder relocation with the bar and template on where to drill the holes...I'd buy it! It gets rid of the last ugly component on the firewall.

The original post is asking about a 55 and I am asking about a 56. I was hoping to find out about the frame mounted kit the OP linked to.
