I just finished the front end and I just realized I can not fit my flare wrench on the two fittings going to the front caliper adapter. Any ideas?

Start over with a new piece of line that is straight and bend it after installing the nuts and flaring.

Edit: OK, I get it. You can't fit a flare nut wrench on the nuts to tighten. Grind some metal off the outside of the wrench opening if the above post still makes it hard to do.

I would “snug” all three line nuts to the splitter block. Take the short line off at the frame to flex line mount, then pull the block out far enough to get your wrench on with a backup wrench on the block itself. Once you have the lines on the block tight, let the block return to normal, tighten the short line into the frame to flex mount and install your line retention hangers….

Luis - Dang you do good work - talk about perfection and car porn!

You have some good ideas here and I think the easiest way is to pop the retaining clip so that you can move it around a little bit. If not, you might have to re-route that little portion of line...

Keep the photo's coming, you have one of the nicest builds I have ever seen.

With a new fitting you should be able to get it tight enough with an open end wrench. I'd try that but do be prepaired at all fittings for a leak. Brake fluid and paint don't mix well.

I'm surprised you don't already have some dainty wrenches to go with those girlish hands of yours. :evil:
