You can buy the brake lines directly from classic tube.

The SS fuel lines are what I am concerned with.

Humm.

Let me know if you figure that one out. I think they are ECR only. JimC made his own with swaglock [sic?].

We are??

Sometimes they get sold out fast, but I always re-order 10 or 15 sets.

Are you on the list for the next order?

As far as I know, what I was told was we were due to get our stuff shipped mid June. When the "project manager" called to check on the status last week the lady told him you guys were no longer making some of the kits for certain vehicles. Which was more or less what I was told when I called up to order some oil cooler lines for this same build, now that I think about it.

Maybe I should talk to you direct?

None of that is correct.
We had a batch of fuel lines that came through with rubber flex lines on them, and those had to go back to get the proper stainless steel flex pipes installed, so that caused a delay.
No NAS 90 or 110 stainless products have been dropped.
We don't make RHD or Euro stuff, but we never have.

Oil cooler lines I make myself and I do them in my free time, and I wait until we have a fairly big order list then I tuck in and build them all as it is faster that way.

Mail order is not the priority here, especially with our Spring rush to get trucks out to customers, but nothing has been dropped.

email me with what you need.

Mike, ECR

Follow-up Post:

I spoke with Holly about this just now and I have no idea how you got what you are saying from what she told the caller.
She told them that the fuel lines are out of stock and we don't have a good eta (as we didn't at the time, but as of last night I now know they will ship to us today).

Holly also told the caller that we are not making any oil line sets right now as we have 2 trucks that have to get done for the July 4th weekend and it is all hands on deck to make that happen, and no time for oil cooler lines until after those trucks are done.
That means there is a delay, sorry about that but in shop customers come first, but that doesn't mean we do not make the product anymore.

Holly and I are on the same page here. She has a list of lines for me to make and I'll do them all son (likely this weekend if it keeps fricking raining up here) and 90 fuel lines should be here Friday or Monday. Brake lines are in stock.

Hope that helps.

What color is that, I'm having trouble figuring it out. It almost looks like sand glow, but in some photos I think its lighter. No matter what, this project is awesome.

Quick question. Why didn't you paint the entire bulkhead? It looks great but since it is galvanized anyway, I would think the masking to paint just the outside would be more work than spraying the whole thing.

Less paint to flake off.

You have to sand the galv coating way down to get paint to stick- if you don't the paint tends to flake off like Ron alludes.

My paint guy found an acid etch primer that will stick to galvy, I am very impressed with no chips so far but tomorrow a bunch of stuff is heading to Line-X so we will see how it does.

I got $50 saying it will flake within 5 years.
