Nice! Love the title of your thread, too. I watched that show when I was a kid; not many people remember it.

I wondered if anyone would pick up on that. About 80 t0 90 % of my build is salvage parts. I loved that show where Andy Griffith made a spaceship out of a cement mixer.

Trying to get brakes all done. I had to go to 4 different parts stores and ended up not getting all I needed. These company owned stores are really lacking when it comes to having knowledgeable help. Most of them don't know much and don't care. When you want something they can't look up on the computer they're totally lost.

I haven't had any trouble.
What are you running into?

Where the lines mount to the caliper there is a notch in the casting so the line has to point to the front. This causes the line to kink when the wheels are turned. I think I could grind a notch on the side an make it work but thought I would see if anybody else had had this problem. A banjo fitting with a 90 would probably work but I don't know if one exist.

No problem with grinding a new notch, done it a few times to get them pointed in the right direction.

Yep done the same myself.
You can also get a fitting that replaces the banjo bolt and makes it a flare fitting.
VVVVSpeedway has them. Go to this page and look around. VVVV
