That looks REALLY nice...care to elaborate on how it was done? I still haven't installed mine (no time), but love the clean look in the second pic.

Yes, but that is the ONLY way to get something that comes out like that...just the way you like it, and like it was meant to be that way from the factory.

I pretty much just went to the auto store, bought a 5' 3/16 stick and the bending tool plus some fittings and started mocking it up.... I rigged up my own bender (took the tool apart) and it worked alot better.

Looks much MUCH cleaner now.

Might I recommend for the next person to try this, use either a cut hanger or pipe-cleaners to get the sizes & angles you want for templates?

I need to redo mine to clean them up a tad and this is my plan...hope it helps.

looks a ton better with the factory flex lines outta there. I plan on doing one of those along with a manual master eventually, and redo all the brake lines on the car while I'm at it, run a single line to the back and T it off back there, run the new fron lines along the aftermarket K member which will go in at the same time, etc.etc.

And get rid of all that abs woring like I see you did. How hard was that too by the way, did you just cut and insulate them, or actually snake them all out?

Wow, that looks really good. I was going to keep my abs, used the air pump bracket, and the top of the anti-lock bracket, and made a single piece so the anti lock box is where the air pump used to go. I havent bent the lines yet. This would be so much eaisier, its just that gm's anti-lock works so well.

How does it stop w/out the abs?
