Hi Paul
You can buy S.S. tubing and AN fittings. So instead of braided S.S. tubing you can run hard lines. For example oil lines from engine to filter could be hard lines if filter was mounted to engine or trans. Less money and maybe cleaner looking. Both have there good and bads.4737

Gotcha...
I guess I have prepped race cars too long, have seen solid lines cracked from vibrations so naturally think of flex lines for oil systems.
Always go back to what we know.... :lolno:

Paul you are correct about cracking. I just think from motor to trans mount would look better. I am still happy with what I have and just got some tube separators.
Say how is that Toad of yours doing?

Poor.topic....
In spite.of my/our best efforts live keeps getting in the way. Business commitments, my health, our CP afflicted daughter's health issues, my failing mother in a long term care facility....it all steals time from our "fun" projects. I keep hoping to see a.light at the end.of the tunnel but so far it has only been more trains!
Someday.....
Meanwhile I live my life vicariously through people like you (and your projects), our 2 racer sons and 5 other kids.
Life goes on!
