inlinetube's 7pc stainless steel brake line kit came today, almost done insalling them and ill put some pictures up. and yes i would recomend thier product.
-these are the hard lines mounted thoughtout the frame. going under the front (engine) crossmember to the passanger side front brake hose to the proportion valve and from the proportion valve to the drivers side front brake hose And from the proption valve to the brake hose mounted on the top of the rear end housing..then from the spit on that hose to each side of the rear brakes. then the two lines from the proprtion vale to he master cylender.

TIPS and TOOLS:
1/2" Wrench
1/2" socket and ratchet
flathead screwdriver or small Prybar
somthing to cut though the old metal lines

---If you have back problems dont even attempt this! im 17 and im skinny and barly have room to get the lines out. i reccomend anyone uses a lift just wish i could have used one

i agree with anthony on this, youve got a lot of time, effort, and money in this car, too much to not see it through to the end

any car i ever own will never end! lol

I already decided what im doing, it will remain for sale and when i do sell it Im getting a new project. then when i have that one for a while get another project.

when this one is gone im getting another chevelle. most likely a 70 (non-ss) or 71. 2 door small block. car will be a daily driver while i do the body work and when the body work is done i sell the drivetrain and get an LS1 and TCI 6X paddleshift transmission. by the way ive already got some deals lines up for the drivetrain! this is my dream car thats why im doing it. i know its just another G2 BUT its not going to be done like the others, everyone goes the same direction with them but not me. but of course ill have to stay on this forum. that is if you guys allow me and dont get mad for trading off to a g2. lol you guys are better than chevytalk and any other foroum and an A body is an A body so yea you know. but ill defnatly never forget this car and i know ill miss it but i have a new way of looking at cars...Its a f'ng car! just a material object. just have fun with it and then when you feel like its time for a change let some other gearhead enjoy it! its not a kid that you have to baby and keep all your life. lol

I just can't believe you are going to sell it without ever driving the finished product. You've put so much time, effort, and money into this thing. You'll never get it back out..... Just the nature of the beast. If you think about it, once sold, you've basically thrown a bunch of money down the toilet.

I'll tell you what... I'll save you the time and effort, and you can just start mailing checks to me. What do you think?

thats true but just keep in mind that its a B.I.T.C.H to have a car down for an extended period of time while you have to work on it so when you have stuff like that in your plans its better to have a car you can drive in the mean time...and like everyone else has already said...you will never get out what youve put into this car money wise...malibu383 is right...its just like throwing money down the toilet...if we were talking a first gen camaro, or 70 chevelle, etc. it would be different, these cars just arent as desirable to the majority, besides this thing has practically been frame off restored...you can just drive it and enjoy while you come home to your other project car, and having an extra car gives you the freedom to not be on a time crunch to get your car up and running again so you can get to work, school, etc...thats what ive been having to do and it sucks A$$.

Yeah the getting money back part sucks. Would you believe I have well over $11,000 tied up in my 73 & I haven't really even put money in it? This is just from the Eclipse I took a bullet for by trading the 71 Chevelles & then this car. I'd say the 73 is lucky to be worth $1,000 in it's current condition.

Looks really good man, clean. However, you might want to be careful with how you're mounting the cooler and fan. Every radiator manufacturer I've seen recommends that you do NOT use the plastic mounting ties. I just pulled this from some site, but they're all pretty much the same.

Try to avoid the plastic fan mounting ties made for this purpose (they look like a ribbed string with a disk at each end) as they will damage radiator fins and put all the weight and tension onto the core.

It might take a while for damage to happen, but with the price of aluminum radiators, you don't want to take that chance.

I'm also with Dan - I'm really curious to see if that single fan without a shroud is going to cool down the beast.

As for cooling for now it will be enough i got it from a friend who had it on a 427BBC that ran 9s, if i need another later i can still add one, and i know they say it will void the warrany on the radiator with ties but these work just as well and only cost $12 instead of $40 fo the normal mounts and theyll never know anyways.

Just remember, you get what you pay for...

Just a thought - You could make your own brackets out of some pre-cut strips of steel or aluminum from the local hardware store. A vise and a drill would be all you need to make your own. It would be stronger and you wouldn't have to worry about ruining the radiator. Question
