    More inspiration for me to get out to the garage and do more to mine. Hmmm think the boss will mind if I take off early? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif I am sure he will understand. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I took a week off work to stuff my 1 ton gear and lift kit on. Of course I left time to do some inteviewing so I could quit when I got back to work.

    I saw in the last pic that you connect 2 brake lines together to form one, how is that working out for you, I was thinking about doing that also.
    BTW your rig is very clean /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    The brakeline is a extended length line from a later model chevy front. Where you see the fitting is actually for a clip to mount it to something. At least thats what it looks to me.
