Great progress! This car is really starting to look nice. Congratulations!

I made all the brake lines on my Chrysler. I used NiCopp lines and fittings that I got from "thestopshop" on Amazon. It was really easy to do,
and it came with everything I needed except a line bender, a double flare tool, and the clips to mount the lines on the frame.

If you are having a hard time getting your pre-bent brake lines, you might consider these.

My dad put a later model power brake booster and a brand new master Cylinder . He ordered the brake lines that will fit the master Cylinder . My dad ordered the brake lines for the car. Thank you for showing these to me

I got my tires waiting to be mounted and balanced but the wheels need to be be blasted and painted but the car is in primer waiting to be painted. I also have a question I put music on my iPhone 6 is there an fm converter that has the plug I can plug the phone so I can listen to my music . I do not have the extra money to get the radio converted to am/fm and have a plug added so I can plug my iPhone into right now. There are times I wish a car stereo company made a radio like my factory 1 but I can listen to an iPod /CD or Sirius XM in it and FM also

I had front disc brakes on the last '61 with the 14" wheels and never had a problem
