happy 4th! mostly brakes today

well, while you were all eating hot dogs and hamburgers I was busting butt trying to get the Javelin that much closer to being done. I bought a wilwood brake proportioning valve about a year ago and am just now getting around to installing it. installing the valve was easy. I just used a longer bolt and bolted it right to the proportioning block. the harder part was plumbing it. I needed 3 brake lines. 1 from the prop block to the input of the prop valve, 1 from the output of the prop valve to under the passenger footwell and a final line from there back to the rear braided line that feeds both rear brakes. I did it in 3 pieces because it would have been a lot harder to bend a single piece to go from the output of the valve all the way to the back. I had a coil of stainless steel 3/16″ line that I bought from summit a while ago and I just bought the eastwood flaring tool. I learned about the tool on V8TV (thanks Kevin!).
