Did you use the automatic brake booster or did you need the manual brake booster? I'm looking over my printouts and none of them say whether or not you need the brake booster.

I do know, however, that you need the manual reservoir and the lines.

Also, do you have any pics? I decided that before I do anything else to the car I should start sourcing the harder to find parts.
