I cleaned the brake pad carriers and added heat resistance copper paste at the contact areas. Brand new return springs are mounted as well. The brake hoses front and at the rear axle to the corresponding carriers are mounted as well (clips to keep the brake hose in place as well). Soon, the brake lines...

Today I went to the paint&body-shop to visit the owner. One bad news and one good news (a joke). All parts are painted, the dashboard and corresponding parts got a clear coat as well.

This afternoon, wanting to install the brake lines.... only the long brake line I could conned to both ends, but some points to discuss around the front subframe and the rear axle tunnel longitudinal rail... The brake line kit from InlineTubes is from below the lowest bottom drawer, not worth the money I spent. I tried to bent it to the shape the old front axle brake lines show.

The wheels got glossy black and a new set of tires. The tire on the passenger side front wheel is mounted, just to look how it looks.

BTW.: new brake lines for the front axle, the rear axle (destroyed at the first shop) and the main brake line from the main brake cylinder to the distribution block are welcome... different supplier?

Make your own brake lines yourself. The tool you purchase will pay for itself the first time you use it. The dash looks great. Chrysler never painted the dash so shiny because they were worried about reflections into the driver's eyes. So they made all the dash paint with a satin finish.
