I bought all these parts hoping it would be as easy as described, but
on my and a friends 91 200tq  20v Avant's the brake master cylinder and 
reservoir come up to high to
just change the fluid  reservoir. The RH bracket needed the noted 
trimming, but the LH
bracket did not need to be trimmed at all, neither did the car. So I am 
in the slow process of making a bar
to go between the brackets. ( I have no tools for this so I am working 
with a friend, a slow process with our conflicting schedules). I should 
be done by the end of the month.
Take a look at the 2B bar (  )and you will see 
it is made out of aluminum and is made to go around the
brake fluid reservoir.
I think the write up is for type 44's that are not our specifically 
peculiar version.
