Not quite. On the se6 there is a bracket on the driverside front suspension upright which carries the brake failure warning switch. Absent on 6a. On the 6a the switch is built into the Lockheed master cylinder. The se6 has a Girling master with no switch built in.

Have you got a picture Graeme? I’ll put it in the FAQ section where I think there’s already a thread with 6a/6b differences.

Attached Jim. Might have a few other se6 body structure photos too if you want to put them in the reference section. I do reserve the rights to reproduce my photo's (in case I write a book when I retire lol).

Note that the master cylinder and servo is in fact a Lockheed one. I changed the Girling one out due to failed seals, and I had a spare Lockheed unit.

Cool - realised after I posted that I have #002 here in storage, so I could take a pic of that 😀
