The GoBigEmma crew had great luck with these guys; the brakes felt modulatable and consistent.

Plus the booster looked fit for a nice restoration. Not bad after being under water for a day…

Did you see the restored booster? Any look at the crimp, the big outside crimp? Did they take the plastic atmosphere nipple and return the plastic atmosphere nipple? I do not see the black plastic atmosphere nipple in that photograph. Without the black plastic atmosphere nipple in the way, do you see any evidence of a new foam filter?
