    • I like those black fittings. Red and blue look good on race cars, but street cars......not so much.

        • and flaring tool, I got reminded again why I never buy anything from Eastwood. Where the industry standard is a week coast-to-coast, their standard is whenever they get around to it plus 2 weeks. I didn't even know that FedUp had a 2 week delivery window - but they do for Eastwood...

            I got stopped on the brakes because the distribution block is not safe to use... no worries, they're cheap.

            • Whose tubing bender do you use?
              Is that 3/8" or 1/2" / steel or aluminum?

                • best tool ever

                  more brake lines



                  back together to test fit... glad I did

                  I'm not sure I can get the filter out once the body is on.....

                  I'm also waiting for more parts, so I'll push this out for a couple weeks and work on other stuff

                      • seemed like a good place, but no

                        this would be a challenge to remove

                        and this is a bit too close

                          no, that's just a picture.... what I accomplished was I only threw my tools across the shop once bending them.....

                            How many times did you throw them across the shop WITHOUT bending them?
