The factory brake line brackets are ugly, but more importantly they're not compatible with the AN fittings I'm using.
I machined a few aluminum adapters on my lathe.
I trimmed the factory brake fitting tabs and installed my -3AN bulkhead fittings with the adapters I made.
I decided to switch gears to work on the shift linkage for a little while.
The mockup transmission I'm using has all of the internals removed, including the selector shaft. It's shown here, it's the splined shaft in the center of the photo.
I ended up making a mockup selector shaft to use in my mockup block.
I threw the rest of the shift linkage together so I can make a plan to rebuild it all.
In the meantime, Woody didn't waste any time tearing into his '72!
I got my '62 registered and plated. Now I just have to pass inspection! But first I have to build a tailgate haha.
