    Has anyone used Classic Tube?

    I threw out all my old brake lines and I'm looking for a stainless set. Just found these on Classic Tube and was wondering if anyone had used them

    Nice. My EV conversion turned into a frame off, so figured I might as well replace the brake lines.

    Are you utilizing 15" rear wheels on the front? I LOVE the look of the car with 15s in front.

    They work fine, pretty good fit. May have to tighten the fittings a bit more than you are used to. Luckily all the fittings can be reached after the body is back on in case you get one that's a slight leaker.

    Cool. I find that with stainless fittings it's best to add a dab of grease to the threads. Keeps them from gouging up the fittings when tightened.
