    Tobacco leaf 3500

    Last december I bought a 1975 P6 3500 automatic in Tobacco leaf. The MOT was expired but it was driveable. A few weeks ago I have started to get it ready for MOT.

It was leaking, sometimes, a very small amount of brake fluid from the lefthand side front caliper for some time, but it suddenly got worse. Luckily I had ordered the rebuild kit some time ago. My 1964 P6...
