Short Description:  Brake lines

Finally!!!! This just about had me whipped! I really didn't like the ICP plastic brake lines all looped around the top of my and the passenger's feet just waiting to be entangled and pulled loose (just recently happend to a fellow Savannah builder). So... after FOUR different versions of routing, ect, I finally have something I like. The lines are all 3,000 PSI stainless steel braided high pressure brake lines with AN-3 fittings. The stock ICP fittings were removed from the pistons and SWIVELING 90 degree AN-3 fittings were installed. It sure is a head scratcher to work out rounting that allows the pedals free range of movement from one extreme to another. Now I'll need to charge the lines and bleed the air then I'll be ready to taxi !! (I might have taxied yesterday with no brakes just because I could ;-)
