Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Written by unlikelylogi... on 5/12/2009 at 02:04 pm

Winglet got a set of Spiegler ( brake lines a few
years ago. Considerably more expensive, excellent service, and available in
various colors. The red lines with red banjo bolts are a nice accent on a '97
PC. A convenient feature of the Spiegler lines is that you can rotate the
fittings so as to minimize any twist in the lines when they are installed.

Installation of aftermarket brake lines may involve a little creativity. In
order to plump out the thinner lines, and offer some additional protection at
strategic points, I added some heatshrink tubing from McMaster Carr. The tubing
I used (P/N 7270K21) has several appropriate qualities:

- 3 to 1 shrink ratio allows it to fit over the connectors and still shrink
tight to the line. (0.75" to 0.22" inside diameter.)
- Adhesive lining keeps it from sliding around after shrinking.
- Red.
- Available in a 9 inch length, $3.30.

If you'd like to borrow the old stock lines, brake and clutch, for G&J to use as
templates, please drop me a message offline.
