In the u.k. that handbrake would fail the annual mot for not being mechanical.. hydraulic and u.k. don't mix.. although road leagal rally cars have them.. depends what's on the car for the mot test I suppose..

Liking this build, good job you're making, Surprised you haven't seam sealed the welds and used body shutz or Raptor before painting the green top coat though.

 

Living in RI you must get your fair share of rainy weather and the extra layers would help keep the moisture out.

The whole undercarriage is seem sealed and some minor panels of the fire wall/bulkhead are seem sealed but not everything. I had it all POR15 but didnt like the finish so ive decided to strip it back and paint it green and thats when i forgot to seem seal some lines but its just something ill have to live with. Ughhh

You can still apply Raptor over your base coat, just scuff up the base with a scotch brite pad and apply the Raptor on top.

 

If you buy the tintable Raptor just mix in some of your green base coat with it as per the instructions and spray it on and you'll have green Raptor protection :mrcool:
