    How did you run your rear disc brake lines? I'd like to see the hard lines and the flex lines.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    i used frt lines. then used front line brackets cut to hold just the line with the clip lioke a tab. welded them to the axle. and then just shortened the stock steel line on each side to fit. looked good. sorry no pics.

    I used front brake hoses for a 1979 Chevette, then made some angle brakets to hold the ends of the hoses to the axle tube, and then cut/flared the hardline to fit the axle.
