    Yes. Innocenti pretty rough, but mostly there: 2.900. Frogeye solid and good-looking, but lumpy panels needed better prep after filling. 11.200 was good money for it.

    The third image shows the end result.

    This simple mod reduces the throw by about a half and due to the better leverage also reduces the pedal effort by the same amount.

    This is what I had to do because I used a SAAB 9000 concentric slave. It may be different if you use a different one, it all depends on the effective area of the concentric slave you use.

    The second image shows mods to the pedal box. The hole that the top of the clutch pedal pokes through needs to be widened so that the forked end of the pushrod can pass through with room to spare.
    The forked end only just needs this space when it is fitted to the pedal using the new hole.

    To be continued....
