Fuel and Brake Line Rework

I swapped out the hard brake lines for flex lines. Had quite a hard time with Bonaco getting the lines back after they were sent back for shortening. I used the recommended length they suggested for the brake lines which was too long, so I sent them back. Well, after a month and a half, multiple phone calls, etc. I finally got them back. This isn’t the first time I’ve had delivery problems with Bonaco, but it will be the last. I won’t be using them again. Too many hassles and delays. It’s a shame because they do good work. I just can’t deal with the other nonsense. I’ll go to PHT from now on.

It was hard getting at the fittings that exit the tunnel, then I realized that I could torque the hoses to the 90 degree fittings while they were off and then just insert them through the hole after. Much easier than getting a wrench in there when the fittings were already in place.
