    Hey Guys. I just bought a new set of front and rear braided brake lines.
    Pretty confident about the installation.
    I always look to you guys for any suggestions or things to look out for.
    thanks:small3d028:

    Ensure you have plenty of the correct grade of brake fluid to hand preferably from a new sealed bottle

    Only buy what you think you will use as far as brake fluid, it does have a shelf life once it is opened:s

    New crush washers on the fittings are a must.
