Ordered some new brake lines to go with my overhauled rear and of course they don't fit worth a fiddlers f***. I sent them some pics so figured I would post while I'm at it. Last pic is my homemade one I bent buy hand. Hoping to get the rear in this week-end. Left side fit after an hour of tweaking and it's not that great. right side just ain't going to work. I guess I'll stick with my home-made ones. Typical stuff when dealing with a 73~77 a body

I got mine from inlinetube and they fit great. I actually got all the brake lines front to rear from them and they fit good.

Thats where I got mine from. Your right side looks like it lays out good. I think mine is too long. Left side I couldn't get it to fit the outer axle tube clip.

Have you fitted them with the backing plates on?

Yes,  rear was blasted, epoxied and installed.  Brake lines layed in place, backing plates installed.  Then the gears, posi and girdle cover.  Lines lined up nicely.

I held the right side next to your pic and I have a S bend that you do not have. Maybe they boxed them wrong.
My girdle cover is on Back order. I'm going to run the old cover for a week or 2, drain it, look things over and then put the girdle cover on.

As always, Thanks for the info...

+1 I bought the complete set of brake lines, front to back, from Inline Tube. I also bought the fuel lines from them too. I didn't have any issues installing any of them.

Hey. Funny this was posted. I have been looking at this as I have to do the entire system. I decided to do all of mine from scratch. I just received my brake flare kit in the mail today. I am going to use the NiCopp tubing all new everything. I am doing it this way because I have the Wilwood brake kit with the Wilwood prop valve and master cylinder. For some reason Joe's stuff always looks right.
