Welcome to the forum, :Hey:
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

You could try places like Rockauto, Napa, Autozone, etc for prices on replacement lines, or buy the tubing and make your own. If you've never made your own before, it's not easy to get it looking good. :)

AND - We all like pix! Got any to share?

Enjoy the Z!

A shop has it right now and am waiting on a call with an estimate. Hoping to get some idea here before I get the call. Ill post pics if I can afford to keep it after we get it back! LOL!

Hello and welcome to the forum, glad to have you join us! I agree with Brad, best thing to do is check with your local parts store for prices on the brake lines. It's not hard to do yourself, but a tubing bender/cutter is an inexpensive tool since most lines don't come molded but they do include the fittings but good luck! Lots of great people and info here, so any help you need, just ask and I hope you enjoy the site! :Hey:

Hubby doesnt want to do it himself. Says he doesnt think he can make the correct bends. He is a diesel mechanic and it covered in grease 14 hrs a day which is the real reason that I think he doesnt want to do it. But is this something that really costs $1,000 or more? Can anyone answer that for me plz.
