Brake line tuck
Hey everyone, I am tucking my brakelines on my da. I have most of it done except for the lines going from my prop valve to my front calipers. Has anyone done this before? How should I run these lines? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
where is your prop valve? if it is inside the car, i believe there are some fittings that allow you to run your lines through the firewall. look here
im intrerested in seeing some pics as well of where people are putting the bulkheads for the front calipers i will find a spot more than likely but i just want to see what others have done with out running into trouble with the upper control arms..please post pics!!1
why do you people do this stuff to your cars? manufactures spend millions to design cars, if they thought putting the lines in a different place would be better they would have done it,
Your brakes worked fine, probably wont after this, leaks down the line....
oh i dunno....
anything can be done but you jus have to do it right plus if your into show then it makes your engine bay look clean so thats the reason for people tuckin there lines

but i guess you actually have to drive your car hard enough to break stuff to actually care about that, so i guess thats a moot point with the show crowd.
have fun copying what volkswagen kids did in the early 90s
you guys ever heard of doing it right the first time, Well thats wat it takes to get things done the first time around so parts wont break unless you drive like an asshole then yea things are most likely to break. everyone has diff ways to build a car some people want clean some want oem and some want a little bit of both but at the end of the day your gonna want to build your car the way you want it to be
can definetly tell this isnt honda-tech can we get back on topic
here are my lines from the firewall to master cylinder i wanted to knopw where to go from the inside to the front calipers
well i know you have to drill a hole from your wheel well for the front brake lines im not to sure on how you route it because ups fucked up my delivery so now i have to wait on getting my brake lines back from them but i will post pics as soon as i get it done

hehe i knew that too...but on honda-tech all they show are ek civics most of the time so you cant go off what those pics show because ours dont look anything like that..so im going to put my foot rest back in and see what i can work with from there and i will post pics for the guys that ARE interested in this process of tucking their brake lines
