i hope it holds but, i'm pretty confident that it will. The silicone i used is good for temps up to 600F, as i was reading all the products and guy standing next to me says, i have some windshield urethane in my car that would be perfect for that but you can call my company and buy a tube of it, I said, well, you have one in your car, is it for sale? he said yeah but i'm not in my car right now.

GO FIGURE!!

you think that rear line is gonna hold up very long like that? Does'nt look like it's got enough slack for the suspesion to travel.

trial and error. I saved the old one and was quite careful to remove everything just in case. I may pick up a longer one if that presents a problem or, i could see about moving something to accommodate its length.

I do want to get with Patrick and have him make me a front line tho!

*edit* Actually Tom, now that i have gone back to take a look at the picture, I stated that i removed the FRONT brake line holder thingy to relieve some of the tension and stress that is seen in the picture, that should allow more flexibility.

on the same note, IF the silicone holds well enough, the duct tape is not needed!!

true dat! ... but.... IF the silicone holds for now and decides to start breaking down in say a month or two for some crazy reason or another... the tape will ennsure a slower leak happens and not any sudden deflations.

Really? So do you check your tire pressure as you're exiting turn one to make sure it was the same when you went in?

You're my HERO!!!

some new, different. don't want to hassle with the tube since the tires sidewall is so thick and heavy, it'll be a to work with and besides, the title says "project"

so far it's held up, been about 2 1/2 hours and we haven't had ANY pressure drop. we'll see once it get to rolling and hit some bumps and things that might jar it.
