Parts needed

  • We might replace the rubber hose for the brake line from the reservoir to the master brake cylinder
    • Current line is kinked but would probably work
    • Is rubber OK or will the brake fluid dissolve it? Isn't rubber what is there now?

    • Road Rat has quoted $600 + $150 in shipping
    • Specialty Vehicles has quoted $330 + $300 shipping
      • SV needs us to order within the next couple of weeks to get in on their combined order to save on shipping from China
      • John is looking into uShip to see if we might save on the shipping a bit
