    4.75mm (stock Subaru brake line) is super close to 3/16" so thats what im using for my lines, then im taking my stock fittings (metric) and using them were the standard lines meet the fitting that goes to the rear lines and were they meet the soft lines in the wheel wells. then im gonna used standard fittings on the stock lines were i have to use a standard T-fitting. kinda confusing but i think it will work. ill keep y'all posted on my progress. im still working on getting a good Double Flare *sigh*
    Interesting, I've heard something a little similar to this on a 240 drift car a kid in my old alignment class had. Couple pics would be awesome.

    will do, i've already pulled the ABS out and routed some of the lines to the fire wall but ill kinda explaine what i did and ill post pics as i go... right now im working on pulling all the lines so i can cut them, put standard fittings on them and re-flare the ends so i can connect them to my standard T-fittings i bought

    so first i pulled out the ABS unit that was right here...


    then i pulled all the hard lines out (there are more than this)


    these are the lines that go to the rear wheels (i dont know which one is which yet)


    these are the new lines that im test fitting to find out were im gonna "T" off from. they might not be going this way but i figured id try something to get started


    this is an OEM line from the master cylinder that i rerouted to the fire wall this way i can put a t-fitting so this line will supply the fluid for the right rear and the left front. i will route the other line that comes from the master cylinder along side this one to supply the left rear and right front

    no, im not doing any major mods on the car just yet. im gonna be moving into a new house as soon as escrow closes. this is why my cage isnt in yet i dont have the money right now. im setting the car up for RallyCrosses to get seat time so once i am ready for my cage, suspension, seats, and all interior safety nick nacks i should be ready to start the "Stages"
