    Well i have all of the parts to get the disk brake conversion going but the brake lines.

    Im unsure what to get..should i just get the stock front lines and if so how do i hook them up in the rear. And if i dont run the stock front lines what do i do? Im planning on doing this project this weekend so any tips would help. Thanks:)

    I used brake hoses for a '79 Chevette and ran them to a bracket that I welded to the axle tube and then I bent hard line from there to the center tee.

    Yep, the nicest brackets available! :D I just looked through my pics for a "no wheel" shot for another forum that I'm on, but didn't have any. I guess I'll have to get one next time I have a wheel off.

    I used the front brake hoses. They were $40-50 and instock at the parts store. The hoses were too long to be ideal for the rear brakes, but they worked.
