More progres today. the rear suspension, axle, and breaks are done. now i just need to move on to the front.
















the pics are all jumbled up. but they shoudl give you a good idea of whats going on.



The sheet metal tabs that hold the brake lines are just like factory ones. upon final install they will be bent and hold the lines in place.

Also i put on 2 more coats of paint after the pics were taken.

the brake lines look cool but i think your going to have a problem getting all of the air out unless you bleed them on a 45* angle.

care to explain how 90% of all other vehicles are capable of doing it?

I think he's refering to your high spots in the the hardline where you bent it to follow the contour of the axle brace. I wouldn't sweat it - don't think it'll be an issue at all.

I dont know if the brakes will bleed as well... It just doesnt make sense, why would someone go through all that trouble to have no brakes in the rear!! :shaking:
