40-something brake hoses

Post by winguyjo »



it's a habit of mine to put metal in the recycling and garbage in the garbage so it was business as usual for me to cut the ends off these 40-year-old brake lines. i think the pic gives a good visual representation of why a rebuild kit, fresh brake fluid and a good bleed doesn't always solve a brake issue ...

Now that you've done brake lines consider rebuilding the master cylinders too, assuming you haven't done this already. Checkout Brakecrafters.com, i just rebuilt mine this past winter and what a difference it made on my`82 standard.
