definitely different from the ones for my 89. Long story short, over the winter
down time I have taken his lines and mine and shipped them to G&J aircraft in
Ontario, CA who created a set of templates so they can make brake lines and
clutch lines for anyone in the group who would like them. They now have
templates to make brake lines for 1989, 90, 97 & 98 and a clutch line for all
years. I did not have 94-96 lines to send them so if one of you wants a set for
those years you can send them the lines and they will make them for you.

way to prime your lines after installation. Using a turkey baster, get a piece
of hose that fits the bleeder and the baster. Use the baster to force fluid up
the line. Start at the furthest caliper then the closest. It took a few
minutes to force the fluid up the lines but way less than it normally takes to
bleed from the top side.
