<VV> anyone have a spare rear grill panel and trim for an early coupe? How about a single master cylinder?

A few thoughts:

 - As pointed out, a dual m/c is particularly worthwhile on an early.
 - I would not use any master or wheel cylinder that has been removed from a car and sat on the shelf without at least a disassemble and inspection.  On the east coast the remaining brake fluid left pulls moisture out of the air and rusts them in fairly short order.

FWIW, I do the conversion on a Corvair when I am doing any work on the brakes.  After you've had a failure - once on a car with entirely new components - you get religion :-)

If I have to I'll steal the one off the 65' but I'd like to keep that car driveable so I'd rather not.  I know lots of folks have done the dual MC conversion so I figure there are probably a bunch of these laying around unused....
