Yeah do that and your good.

Oh, ok, umm, I would get the straight tubes and then bend them like you want. Cheaper than the pre-bent and easier to mess with than the coiled stuff.

Re: What size brake lines, redoing from scratch

what you saying willys, that job is gonna be a breaze compared to your SFA swap, i got the body off, its just a frame with axles and wheels at the moment, still have to get the fuel lines in there. i just don't know the size the original lines were, i guess going bigger won't hurt it any.

EDIT: crap i always misspell your screen name there, i had it right, willys and changed to willis.
