[Healeys] 3000 brake fluid resevoir

I did mine with a deep socket.

However, be warned, each side of the "nipple" has a rubber gasket that stops
the leaking.....you will destroy this gasket when you take the "nipple" off.
They must be replaced with a brake fluid resistant material.  I made mine
with some old tire tube....but took me a few times to get it right.

Any tips on taking the nipples out of the can so that I can clean and
repaint? The nipple in the center tube is turning and I don't have
sockets that fit down the tube.
