Tri-Five Chassis - Framing A Classic, Part 5

Our Chassis Gets Up And Rolling With Wheels, Tires And Brake Lines

Bending Lines
Bending and routing hard brake lines may seem like an easy task, but making it all look nice and tidy is an acquired skill that takes plenty of patience. The job is certainly easier when you don't have obstacles like an engine, transmission, or body panels to work around, which is one of the reasons we chose to do it now. (Of course, without the engine or body in place, it can be difficult to know if you're going to run into clearance problems later on.) Armed with a simple Snap-On tubing bender, a flaring tool, and our bare hands, we were able to get the job done and route the lines in a reasonably attractive fashion, but it did take more time than we anticipated. The following is a brief synopsis of the tools and techniques we used to form and flare the tubing.
