Just picked up a set of Aerospace fron drag brakes.Didn't come with lines.I am gonna run -3 braided lines but need to know what size the hard line fitting is so I can track down some adapters to go right from the factory hard line to the -3 braided line.Thanks Chip

They are both 7/16x24 on a fox body. We have them in stock or we can make you the lines with the correct fittings already crimped on.

Yes you can cut the flares off and reflare with the 3/16 tube nuts. BE CAREFUL though......these cars are anywhere from 17-31 years old. Tubing does what we call work harden. It gets very tough to reflare over time. You have to have a good tool and it has to be a double flare. And it still may not flare right. Make sure you are perfectly square and deburred. As far as the length of the hose, thats just about right on factory length.
