Brake Lines

When it came to installing the brake lines.  I made the decision to include a parking brake system from Matco.  This can be ordered in a full kit from Airward.  Comes with everything you need including mount for the firewall.

In additon to this, I decided to not use the Vans supplied brake lines and go with a braided set that I had made by Bonaco.  This was a great decision.  Brent from Bonaco did a great job and now has a set as part of his catalog so you do not need the measurements, he now has them.

Installation was pretty quick and easy, just need to find out which hose goes where and then tighten them down.  All done and looks great.
