    Building a brake line bending fixture.

    I am finally back working on my Astro van project, getting some of the brake plumbing done. I swapped out the stock prop valve for a Wilwood piece and had to reconnect the master to the valve.

    This was a bit of an adventure getting the tight bends that were needed to run the lines.
    I ended up making a little bending fixture to get it done. This will be pretty handy for doing the rest of the van.


    I made the clamp block on the mill. Both ends have their uses and I used both getting the bends into the lines.


    Continued in next post.

    The line for the rear brakes is in.

    And here is the line for the front brakes.

    This is one of the double flares I do with my CPP Flaring tool.

    Thanks for looking.
