Re: [T3] Stainless steel braided brake lines


Can someone recommend a good source for the front and rear brake
lines? I'm having a hard time finding the listings for the rears,
oddly enough. I have a '73, and at this point my brake hoses are an
unknown quantity- they could be 30+ years old as I have no evidence
they were swapped out at any time. I'm looking to swap them all out in
the spring.

I'll worry about the hydraulics themselves (MC, Calipers, Wheel
Cylinders) on visual inspection. I know one or both rear wheel
cylinders were replaced within the last 10 years.
