As close as possible.
Older masters had them right in the outlet.

Looks nice, but one problem.
You need to put a couple loops in the lines coming out of the master. They way you have it the lines will crack at the flares due to vibration.

. You don't need the residual valves for disc brakes... for drum brakes, can be anywhere along the line...

I have read that.This is why I have one for the front and one for the rear.I haven't updated anything because I have been busy with the mock up of the body back on the frame with engine and trans in place.Lots of work for one guy.
