Fuel Lines, Brake Lines, and Such

Fuel Lines, Brake Lines and Such

I sweat and strained today, but I have very few images to share of my work today. One of the main things I had to do was tie the fuel lines, brake lines, and wiring harness together with aluminum clips along the one of the chassis rails. Sheet aluminum had to be cut into strips, bent into shape, and drilled for mounting holes. Almost every clip was different in size because of the number of lines that needed to be held in place. It was tedious work, so I didn’t have energy to take pictures of the process. I’ve shown different steps of this process before, so I won’t bore you with the details. At the end of the day, I can assure you, it was looking neater than when I started!

The brake master cylinder was fitted in place, and the various lines were bent into shape. As simple as this looks, it took many trial fittings to get everything to line up.

Other small projects included fitting this small soft fuel line to the hard lines. It’s almost too bad all these component pieces are nicely nickel plated Correction Silver Cad Plated (7/09), because all this will be hidden under the car well out of view!

What’s new in this picture? The shocks! We’re getting very close to putting the engine in!!!
