Make it stop…

Before the engine goes in, it was decided it was the best time to replace the brake lines. I was lucky tohave some handy tips on hand from the gents at A quick trip to ABS and $140 lighter, I picked up 10 Metres of 3/16″ Steel brake pipe (Bundy Tube) and some fittings. I purchased 8 Tube Nuts, 3/8″ as well as some other fittings. Carefully measuring and cutting lengths of pipe, bending roughly into shape and fitting them to the vehicle one by one took a few hours, but was worth the effort. The next step is to flare the ends and actually bolt them p, something I can’t do until the Blue Point flaring tool arrives.
