ever thought about hardlines? Its cheaper then braided and it lasts alot longer then air brake line. Reg air brake line should be replaced every year or so depending on max psi.

Im gonna mix harline and braided for reliability, plus 1/2 braided only cost me about $1 a foot :biggrin:

run it from under the back seat through the interior, clamp it every 9inches in the interior, then drill a hole in the firewall and run the hose there. Thats what i did to my Boy's Whip but it wasn't no g-body :uh: :(

on mine i drilled four holes (2 for rear/2 for front) in the trunk floor about 4-5 inches from the back of the seat, ran the lines out and over to the frame rails, then ran them straight up to the front, i will go out and get some pictures... i still have my car in the air on jack stands and the wheels off... so give me a couple hours and i'll post some pics to show you...

Here are some of the pics...
http://www.backbumper.com/83cutty/01-17-04/

The views are of the passengers side, i was directly
under the gas tank when i took the pics... just to let
you know which side was pictured...

I'll be back in later, going back out to the garage and
tear down the drivers side rear... if you have any questions
i'll respond when i get back in later (3-4hrs or so).... i might
take some more pics too...

Jason
