I bought the Eastwood brake line tools for a different project but never used them on it, so this was the first go round today. The deburring tool worked great and their flaring tool (barring any leaks) was great too.

Cleaned up the line loc and put it together, threw the line adapter brackets on the frame and temporarily mounted some fittings so I could start bending some line.

Back for an hour this morning to do some more bending. I ordered one wrong fitting for the master so I have the correct one coming tomorrow, that will help get me to the point of ordering the two sections of braided hose at the master and one to the brake pressure gauge. I have to go get some fasteners and I'll go back for more work this afternoon.
Unfortunately Autumn has been sick with a fever all week so I'm on my own but just want to move forward and get a few things knocked off the punch list.

Enjoying the progress and everything looks awesome. I think it would be wise to move the brake line below the top surface of your crossmember, run it along the front face.

Thank you, and I'll leave it in the factory clamps, should be fine.

A few more pieces of the puzzle done this afternoon.

BS work going on not really fit to print tonight, powdercoating brackets and reassembling trinkets. I did get the coated locks in so that at least has a nice visual impact.

I want to take a second to thank everyone for looking in on this thread, amazing to me how many views it's had, 60k WOW. Lot's of input from some of the seasoned vets of the sport helping along the way via talking to me at the track or through calls, texts or PMs. We're looking forward to moving in a positive forward direction and I hope we're making Bill Belden proud of our work.
