Rear Brake lines

Post by paul97 » 03 May 2009 17:46

I have a 69 510 4 door and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get the rear brake lines that go from the rear wheel cylinders up the rear arm to the flex hose. I would like the correct length and pre bent if possible.

Pm nasaracing510. I'm quite sure he has some he would sell you.

I went to my local Nissan dealer this morning and they said they have been obsolete since 1984.

Pretty much. You could also get braided stainless lines in the length necessary to replace the short steel lines, or go from the rear brakes to the T fitting and eliminate the rubber as well.
