How about like this?



OK, not really...but that is what I found when I got in a Mk3 that another "professional builder" had begun but not finished a few years ago

After I took it all out for a "do over" it looked like this which is the route I always run:



Cheers,
Jeff

Anyone that does brake or fuel lines like that (first photo) should never be allowed near a build. There is no excuse for that, I hate the lazy, just sort bend stuff around, attitude. Bends should be nice and neat. Just what I would expect from Jeff, good job

Because I'm a noob & don't know any better, I put my rear splitter up next to the steel triangle at the upper trunk. I wish I'd seen Jeff's or CDXXVII's routing...and I hope I NEVER have to replace one of the hard lines!

The OE Mustang had a steel tube to just left of the diff and rubber hose to the Tee mounted on the axle. Steel lines out to near the calipers and then short rubber hoses to the calipers. I like Jeff and Rich's layout better.
