I drilled two holes under my rear deck and then used rubber gromets. I wire tied the hoses to the little subframe that goes across and then down the rails.

I have pics but, they were taken with a regular camera. I am suppose to get a digicam soon if someone hurrys up *cough cough V * anyways, you can get up under your car and route the hose next to your brakeline. Once you get under there then you will definately be able to tell where to run the lines.

HAHA i have been under my ride for the past 15 min at 10:25 at night!! (your in indiana you know its cold out there when you lay on the ground!) well from what i see i could run it throw the back of the trunk floor (under the deck) down infront of that brace thing....now this is where it gets funny! there is the trailing arm and above that is a little brace...i cant go under it because when the cars lowerd i know that arms going to get REALLY close to the brace....and theres not alot of room above it...

Damn, now you have me tryting to remember exactly where I have mine tied off at. And hell yes it is cold. :biggrin: If I remeber right, I tied them off to the front of the brace and then ran them above it and through the trunk floor under the rear deck. I will look tomorrow when I cut another turn off my rear coils. What part of IN are you from? Matter of fact, give me a few minutes and I will go and see if I can tell without climbing under my car. I might be able too cause I have plenty of room considering my bumper gets almost as high as my chest. :biggrin:

Alright, I ran them under the brace. They are inbetween my trailing arms. They are tied tight against it. Tomorrow I can give a better description cause right now its a little dark. ;)

I didn't run mine from the trunk on my first Cutlass. If you take off the bottom of the back seat you'll see 2 drain plugs. Take out those plugs and then run your lines through there.

you just gotta push the bottom piece foward and the lift up and the it will pop out. Then there is a toque key to un do bolts to take the back rest off
