I finished the brake lines on the entire car, so they are bent and in place. It wasn't too hard of a job, just time consuming and took a bit of effort. I think it came out well for my first time!
|Darker green lines that run from the brakes up to a brass T fitting.|
|Green line running along side the tunnel|
|Master cylinder and front lines. Also backwards tie rod on the left side of the picture.|
I also go the wheel cylinders mounted on all four backing plates, so I was able to run the lines and next I will able to setup the brakes.
|Safety wired the bolts too, the wheels aren't falling off this project (yet!)|
I put the heater control cables in which control a flap in the back near the engine to direct heat into the car. You know, in the summer time here and stuff. So with the placement of the ivory knob I am now in the "finishing" phase of the car....YEAH RIGHT!
|Which then moves this cable (and another one on the other side) backwards and forwards.|
One minor set back I did have was with the tie rods. I put the right one on backwards. Oops. I had to get a tool from the auto parts store to remove it and in doing so, ruined both rubber pieces on the tie rod ends. I ordered two more and the lovely price of $38...at least it's not the $59 that the whole tie rod cost new!
When bolting on the new master cylinder I remembered I had a rubber piece that came off the old one. For the life of me though I can't find anything online that resembles what this could do besides maybe an old master cylinder boot. That means when I disassembled it I had two boots...which is not factory and not surprising :)
