stainless brake tubes

i was woundering if any body would want to go in on a group buy of stainless steel brake tubes?would like 4 or 5 more people. what would happen is i will send in my old brake lines,this guys scans them with a machine and another machine spits them out. so doing one set isnt bad but it would be cheaper to do 5 or 6 sets. so you dont have to send in your old lines and he only has to scan once and can produce as many sets as we want. ecr (east coast) has these lines for $325, should be able to get this done for closer to $200 maybe less?i am having this done no matter how many people (if any?) are in.just would like to save some $$ and you could too.let me know if interested or an questions

Hey Matt, What do you mean by "not for long" next to your description?

The fitting sizes are all metric just to let you know Matt. I am still up in the air on what color to shoot mine too... I want it a rover color but don't know which one yet?

I saw a Series 88 that was a nice dark green, Different then the 90s green, I have never seen a 90 in that color but it reminds me of expeditions and safari type stuff I thing it qould be a cool color for a 90 and still Land Rover.

Dave, was that ever a Land Rover color? I think I saw a purple Rover once but I think it was a Rustolem Job.

Yes, back in 1978 a rare model was released to celebrate Elton John's wild success. At the time Elton was the only export other than Land Rovers to be successful outside Great Britan. It had a special package which inluded pink diamond plate and shag carpet.

randy - just talked to them and he said they did get my box the other day they just have not had time to look at them, they are really busy and ontop of that they are short handed a couple of guys.he said they should look at them and get back to me on tues. so i hope your not in a rush becuase it could be as long as 3 weeks at the most before we see any lines. so i will let you know when i hear something more. buy the way i also sent my fuel and clutch lines in to see if he could do those so if any body wants in on those let me know. those lines are for a v8 im pretty sure thy are different on a tdi, right?

mike this was a d90 with a 145k miles on it. i believe the lady that owned it first, put most of those miles on it driving from new jersy to the new england area for ski trips which = alot of winter driving.never less the thing was a bucket of rust under the skin.so im probably going just a little over border on the rebuild everything is galv.,stainless steel,powder coated, or por 15.

Sounds good. I've got to drop a new rad in mine soon, blasted thing runs hot.
Hope it's an internally blocked rad and nothing in the engine internals

Yes, the clutch line is different on the TDI. I am in no rush so as soon as you find out just let me know.
