Hi all,

I have the new Goo


Hi all,

I have the new Goodridge stainless steel brake lines almost installed on the 308. The two front lines are on so I took some pics for you guys. I would like to note that there is no free play in the connections with the hard lines. Everything went together rather easily.

In the closeup shot of the end of the hose you can see that the metal part had been rusting for a long time. I am glad to get the original hoses off.

Thanks for the photos. Looks

Thanks for the photos. Looks good.
I was doing the front brakes on my 308 this past weekend, and decided to remove the two panels in each wheel well. You should also, while you are there. I found that one of the heater blowers had unscrewed from it's bracket and was dangling by one screw. Reattached everything, cleaned all electrical connections, and buttoned it up.
This was the first time I've ever had these panels off.

I also noticed the heater/coolant hose behind the drivers side rear panel was rubbing against sharp metal. I just filed it slightly and put a small piece if pipe insulation around it to protect against further damage.

FWIW-couldn't hurt while you are already there.

Thanks again for the photos. I'm glad someone had an easy time with the braided line installation. After all I've read, I figured I would just stay with stock hoses when I replace them this spring-but you may have changed my mind.

JR,

JR,

I didn't want my baby's feet to get cold at night so I picked up some carpet squares to put in the garage.


Actually my neighbor across the street is a contractor for a demo company. While we were moving in I notice he was vacuming his garage. I thought that was odd so I walked over. A few weeks later he calls me up and asked if I wanted some carpet. The rest his history...

Hi John,

This project was not as hard as I would have thought it would be. Not much room to work in, but I have come to expect this when working on her. Thak you for the panel idea. I hadn't thought about that until now. Also while I am in there I will be looking at a few other items. The steering rack is leaking where the steering linkage hooks in. Might be normal, I'll have to snap some pics and get with JR. More projects!!! At some point I think I will have to leave stuff alone and just enjoy driving her.

My wife will let me know when I get to that point I'm sure.

You mean carpet squares like this?



I work in an Architecture firm that also does Interior Design. I can pick from about 1000 samples- so I replace them often. I can't even see concrete under the car- also makes it easy to work sitting on the ground!

I think I will just try the steel braided lines- that was the point of this post anyway- right?

Hi Steve,

Thank you. I go


Hi Steve,

Thank you. I got the seat covers off Ebay. If I remember correctly they were $175.00. There is another thread here with the info.
