I guess I'm about to learn, because I'm also thinking about redoing all the hardline sections while I'm in there.

I've done a fair ammount of brake-line flaring, its really fucking easy as long as you have a flaring tool, and the V file. Never done it without the tool though.

If you do it, just remember to slide on the threaded fitting the right way before you flare the end, cause you feel really stupid when you don't

And as for work on the car, I need to do my front wheel bearings, and there is a wierd ass noise from my brakes that I'm going to have to figure out, which sucks cause It sounds right fucking wierd heh.

This is Justin at Coals house.

Cam, I beleive you have to replace the entire Hub on the front as the bearing is part of the hub. Not 100% sure on that though, but if its true talk to Mic, he may still have those mint GXL hubs kickin round somewhere.

Yeah I agree with Cma G man, flaring is wicked easy with the tool, remember to have the threaded fitting on and such. I don't think you can even flare the lines properly without the proper tool but not sure. Its real easy work though. At school we had a tool that could flare the lines and also do Mandrel type bends on those hard lines so you don't crush it fuck up your solid lines. Try and find someone with that tool as it makes it extremely easy. Best of luck to you!

Speaking of brakes, I think its time for some new front pads for me. Guess I will get some when the car comes off the road, hoping to take it off the road in Sept sometime. So many idea's for plans if I can save some decent coin over winter. But we'll see what happens, no guarantee's on anything. Well maybe I'll see some of you around sometime in the next bit, I may be out to the timmies meet next Friday but not sure. See what happens.

Bomex is sweet. I don't have the cash for it though. And I sorta don't like it as much as I used to. Still a wicked nice kit. Someone should snatch that up (with an S5).

Nothing wrong with S4's other then the bumper does not fit S4's without leaving gaps. Not sure exactly why but it's an S5 only body kit unless of course you like gaps between your bumper hood etc etc.

So ya...I'm bored now...gonna go do some shit.

Ya I didn't get the whole Coal's move thing either. Oh well.

Hey Jeff......9 days muthufucka! LOL.....My 3rd money collection is almost here. So far I've made $70 in total ($20 from George and $50 from Mic). Lets add that $30 to it on Aug 1st! Oh man I can't wait.

Update:
Deck is gonna be installed next week probably, and possibly my 6x9's if I can find some small boxes for them. Can't wait, will finally have good music. Then I just need some front speakers to replace the stock units and maybe eventually a small small amp and its good to go!

later
