LMAO

So why is that better than the OEM rubber design?

Stainless Steel lines provide a number of benefits as compared to their OEM rubber overmolded counterparts.

1. The SS braid provides superior protection from flying roadway debris.
2. The SS braid and Teflon hose reduce expansion during pressurization.
3. They provide the race car look.

Well I have some feedback, I installed the Russell lines on my car about 3 years ago, and it's been parked outside for a couple of years since I had no garage. Just was looking at the lines the other day and all of the fittings are rusted! I thought they were stainless steel, I guess that the hoses are the only parts that are stainless, the rest of the fittings must be plain steel since they are covered with rust just like a lot of the parts Chevy made in 1987 on my frame.


1987 Choo Choo Customs El Camino SS with Monte Carlo SS TH200R4, 3.73 posi rear,'87 SS wheels, Edelbrock TES with Flowmasters, S-10 Xtreme spindles & front brakes and custom SS/GN interior w/ power seats, mirrors, antenna, concert sound, etc .... The way GM should have made it in 1987! Coming soon 383 w/ roller cam!

TTT! Total price has only gone up a few dollars but the part numbers remain the same. Ordered mine on Monday but was curious if those who used this brake line "kit" were still happy with the fit & finish of the parts listed.

Thanks again MCSS.com!
