Ah, the good old days

Yeah right.  I just got my new prebent brake lines in the mail today. $168 to my door, that's  tax and delivery included. All prebent stainless steel. Remember the good old days of trudging to the auto store and buying the straight pieces of steel lines with seams and piecing them together into a Hodge podge patch work mess. All the bending trying not to kink the lines. Cutting and flaring the ends. I am happy not having to deal with the mess. I also bought new stainless fuel lines and a hardware mounting kit with all the fasteners needed for both fuel and brake lines. I will get the tranny dropped out of the way tomorrow, and start cleaning the engine compartment. I can then run the front brake lines. Hope to install power brake conversion kit next year, so having all new lines will make that an easy addition.

  1. Wuss! A REAL man would make the tubing himself by drilling out drill rod! And then bend it around the curvature of his nuts!

    Good for you for spending the extra scratch and doing it right. Maybe by next year you'll be able to drive the Stang to the 1500.
