|There were certain companies that I knew I wanted to do business with going into this project. One of those companies was Pure Choice Motorsports. In case Pure Choice is a name you haven't heard of let me get you up to speed. They offer cool plumbing fittings for brakes, fuel systems, and transmissions. Pure Choice has supplied fittings for many well-known street rods and professional builders and will be supplying all the brake, transmission and fuel fittings needed for Project33.
I had an idea of how I wanted to plumb the brake system so I drew it out on a sheet paper and faxed it to Pure Choice to get their expert opinion. There are a few strange fittings I would need to plumb the project as planned and Pure Choice Motorsports stocks more unique fittings than any place I know.
Above is a quick shot of the fittings needed for the brake system. I'll list the purpose of each fitting as we progress. I have decided to run steel 3/16-inch line instead of stainless steel partly to hold cost down, since you do really see the brake lines anyway, and because I already own a 45 degree flaring tool and stainless lines use a 37-degree flaring tool. Not only did I not want by a new tool just for this job, but by using steel I'm assured I can find emergency repair pieces wherever I travel. Steel lines are also much easier to work with. To make the lines look better I'll steel wool them and spray them with clear.
