Stainless steel hard brake and fuel lines vs standard steel hard linesl

Recommended Posts

Beautiful work, with that kind of show car detail your Z is going to be stunning. I'm guessing they want you to tighten and loosen the connections so many times because the SS is harder and needs to be tightened multiple times to make a good seal?

As I remember there are about 22 connections in the brake system so 132 times of open/close,  that's a few hours work. Great results though.

Nice job Doc......beautiful car, and you are right, the stainless really sets off that blue paint. How about some pics of the rest of your car?

Yes, my understanding is that the ss is harder metal and has to be swaged to the existing seat. 

I'm not sure how they could have been that far off, with the 3D scanning they do and computerized bending machines.  I halfway expected the long ones to be off a bit, but the short ones?!  I need to call them and let them know of my experience and see what they say.

Thanks!  Here's a few pics of how it was until a few months ago.  You don't know it, but I think we have at least a couple things in common.  I decided to go with a stage 4 STD motor with Eiji at DSI.   It's all finished now and sitting in his shop.  But we're waiting on a crate from Japan full of SS exhaust goodies, and for a hot-off-the-press Jenvey manifold for their ITB's.  I decided to really clean up the engine bay while I'm waiting for all the excitement to be ready.  Compression ratio is 11.4:1, with LD28 and all his head and block work.

I see that you just got a motor together with him as well.  I was watching your recent thread with interest, learning what I could about various related.  I see too that you appreciate the NSX  :)

Absolutely......Really beautiful Z and NSX. I don’t know which one I like driving best. You’ll love the Datsun Spirit Stroker engine....really makes for a fun drive. Can’t wait to hear how you like the ITB’s too, Eiji really keeps up with all the performance goodies. We will be doing more head to head this Spring at Dinwiddie Drag Strip....we have a blast! If ever in Virginia, stop by. BTW the NSX made it’s way from Texas to Virginia.....another thing we have in common.   :beer:

Regards

Guy
