Brake and Fuel hard line install
#1
Installed all of the fuel and brake hardlines front to back on the car. They were purchased from Mustangs Unlimited and made by Classic Tube. In general bends were in the right places. I am not 100% satisfied with the brake line that runs the length of the car from the rear axle to the distribution block. It is missing about 8 inches and four bends that were in my original factory line. You still get to the same place, but for the concourse level I am going for it is a compromise. Here are a couple of photos.

That looks tremendous!

Were the brake lines suppose to be "original"? Do they give any explanation as to why they are not? Do you have another source to replace the line that is not bent to factory specifications?

Thanks for the update. Please keep us updated.

Hey,

Everything looks great!! I am also curious as to why the brake line doesn't follow the factory specs. I guess you can always locate one from another supplier and return the one that is out of spec even though it is a huge inconvenience.

They are made by Classic Tube. Unless you are going to bend your own this is the only source of close to original pre-bent brake lines. I am thinking about making a union in the trans tunnel and bending the back line myself to match the original. That way the union will be concealed and the rear section will follow the original path.
