im replacing the steering rack and have got most of the nuts and bolts off except for the ones on the t shaped bracket that are threaded and bolted from the other side - what do I do?

Martin is the person to speak to and should be able to guide you in the right direction if you want upgraded brake parts. The Sonett brakes are identical to 95/96 brakes. The web site for them is www.partsforoldercars.co.uk
I belive the bolts on the T shaped bracket are security bolts which are designed in such a way that the bolt heads snap off when installed for the first time, you may need to drill them out? I can't say for sure as it's not a job i have tackled before! I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong. Good luck!!
