DB conversion kit, 68 Ragtop

Guys and gals,
I have sinned, I have been away for a long time with the occasional check in.

I had basic brakes, drums, no power, 10-bolt, mono springs

I have the 1968 MC-Booster combo, repro, with the sideways prop valve and the circular pot
Now have discs front and a 12-bolt with multi-leafs in the back.

The problem is, with the car down for YEARS, these new brake lines, the line going to the rear is either very wrong or I'm on crack. I have it going to the correct port on the prop valve, outside the steering, down the angled part of the subframe. After it crosses over the subframe it just seems all wrong!

Could someone show me how it is supposed to look?
Thanks a bunch.... I really need the car going AND STOPPING! I have work being done here in a week and I'm having trouble with something daily on this.

Re: DB conversion kit, 68 Ragtop

Thx Al!
I went over the subframe further back. Mike Price 69Grandma-z28 sent a pic. More or less this angle. The line above was of in its bends and angles.I put some curve into it, got the line fit, now I was able to snap into the clip on the outer side. The balance of the line has bends in it, probably should not be there... Think I can go from the back, see where they meet, and adjust the errant front from there.


Lost my photo host, will have to get another.
