    This is gettin really old, I got steel braided lines so they would work, but now I have wasted $$, I am starting to think that the whole stopping thing isn't ment for me /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    replaced, master cylender, power booster, rear/front lines, rebuilt and cleaned the proportioning valve, and replaced the main hard lines and break switch, not to mention wiring up the toyota lights /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif


    And finally when I get linesthey take
    A BIG POOPIE /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    shawn... better that line blew now than when you were approaching a railroad crossing with a hi speed amtrak train coming by...obviously the manufacturer will replace it right?
    I really like the toyo taillights... can you tell me how you did it and how well they fit.. (pic isnt a closeup so I couldnt tell) could you IM me and let me know?

    Are you sure that your brake lines are long enough to deal with all the suspension droop that took place during your "Dukes Of Hazzard" adventure? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif You might have damaged a line then if it became a suspension limit strap during your flight. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    turns out the break line was damaged by heat when I welded my battery box to the frame, I will try to rep-lace them today, /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif


    Yes I am glad I found it out now and not the hard way /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
