thanks for the input. there's a gap there that's not shown in the pic. i'll wrap the brake line with a piece of fuel line as you recommended.Don't let that brake line rub against the nut. If you need to, use a piece of rubber fuel line to wrap around the brake line between it and the nut (and add that item to your annual maintenance checklist). If it were me, I'd reroute the brake line to under the 3/4" tube.
Yes, the hole in the front of the foot box is for wiring.
Plastic connector?Chewy said
"Any recommendations on how to run the flexible lines to the MCs? Front of footbox is really thick. I'm assuming the opening immediately adjacent is for wiring."
I was nervous about going through the front too. I was thinking side. I'm sure you can make that nice. I thought too the engine is going to be right there also not sure if that was going to be a factor.
I went through the front using the plastic connector.
I got a good titanium impact ready 1/2 bit. I used a regular drill until it started to break through.
If you don't have a handle on the drill that thing going to rip your hand off at that point and bust your knuckles into that new bracket you just made. Plus bend you thumb on the other hand. I have the cuts and bruise to account for it. Use gloves and glasses.
I stopped. Filed out some and used a impact drill to finish opening that all up. The connectors went in perfect. It's a tight fit on the other side to tighten everything.
I left slack in the tubes to make sure I can push them away. Think about how your going to access the hose clamps and position them so you can get to them after the car is built.
I had to spread it to initially get the spacers in. I don't think i'd be able spread it enough to get a shim in as well, at least not without really deforming the tabs. I'll reposition the spacers so that there's one on either side of the bar. on the opposite side (PS), I followed the manual and put all the spacers on the front (0.375" x2 and 0.25"x1) with a washer/shim on the rear side of the bar. I'm assuming this is correct, right?As Rich said you need to have a spacer on each side rather than both on the same side. Looking at the photo it appears that you have the mount squeezed in a great deal...if you spread it when you reorient the spacers you might be able to fit the other shim in.
