    Default Braided brake hoses

    I am working on a clients 69 K5 and needed braided brake hoses. I could not wait a week for them so I found out East Coast Gear supply could make D.O.T approved Brake hoses that day. The best part is I watched the entire process and Chase the owner explained what made them D.O.T Approved . The ones I could get on line would have ran 150.00 to 200.00 plus shipping. I picked up a set for 90.00. I plan on having my 280 brake lines done by him in a few week said it would be less then the K5 lines.

    I would like to see some photo's when you get them. $90.00 is a good deal for custom made.
    Im thinking of buying a set of HEL NIS-4-005-X for my 280Z, but all the photo's on the internet show banjo fittings. My intentions were to just replace the hoses and leave the original piping in place.

    When I bought the replacement fuel lines for one of my tanks, the place where I bought them also does braided brake lines. The guy told me that for some of the less common fittings, they can just reuse the ones from the original lines and crimp the new lines onto them.
