Ya, coatings have many negatives. Your car takes alot of abrasive abuse underneath and once the coating is breached, it become a place for moisture to hide. Brass really doesn't need a coating. It takes on the elements pretty well, unless something like salty water gets trapped against it. We have had an editing situation where someone got pissy and removed threads and pictures. I do not like people using a privilege to alter our database. And I am truly sorry I have to take a step that'* makes for a bother to most to guard against immature actions.

To make up for it, and keep the option for existing Subscribers valid, Sawgunner has been assigned/accepted the job of editing. If you feel the need or benefit in an edit, PM him the correction and he will get right on it.

Still the best Automotive board on the net. Considering the Bonny has a small the base- the expertise, response and advice is very superior. I have written on a few other boards on Blazer/ Bravada and F-150 issues and it often takes days/ weeks to get a response and when one does it is often a three word response.

Want to thank all the members of this board. EVERYONE brings something to the "fight". In the thread Raptor'* comment of how he bends the pipe by hand sparked an idea and that is what I ended up doing. Bought the copper/ nickle premade pipe from Autozone, bent it and it is up and running. I had to add a junction to tie two pieces together- so I worry if I degraded the performance.

Finally, I may send out the original line to inlinetube.com and have them scan the line and make a factory stainless steel replacement. It is the wife'* car and I want the brakes to be as safe as possible, and running them the exact factory route (I came close) may be the safest option.

I have seen rock guard paint and bedliner from a can used on brakelines. bedliner works really well to stop abrasion
