Our Peugeot 505 Turbo S is currently a veteran of four LeMons races, and still hasn't blown up. No one is more surprised by this fact than we are.

Untold years spent as yard art waiting for LeMons glory has a tendancy to rot the freaking hell out of degrade the brake and clutch systems of any car. During the hibernation, Pujo! developed a thirst for brake fluid. Unfortunately, no one could find where the fluid was going. Chief Hydraulic Monkey Scott attacked the problem with tearful resignation spunky optimism. While poking and prodding around the dashboard's nether regions, he dropped a nut and heard a hydraulic fluid-ey "Sploosh".
A torturously long brief bit of wrenching produced an oozing Rube Goldberg-inspired brake and clutch hydraulic system.
The fine folks at Peugeot have devised a way to tell any mechanic in the world to regardez the documentation before tearing into a mystery sphere.
Fortunately, we will be able to reuse the truffles fasteners that hold the brake and clutch systems to the rest of the car.
