Default Need help installing brakelines, anyone?

I'm new to AZ and have met a bunch of you at the santan meet, missed the last few because the car has been apart, but anyways I recently got some SS brake lines that I want to install. I've always worked on my own cars, but never swapped lines. I can pay a little or offer beer and food to anyone willing to help. I'm located in Tempe right off the 101 and have a garage with tools, except for a brake bleeder.

Let me know, pm me or I'll be at the san tan meet this thursday.

Thanks,
Mike

Well I ordered a motive speed bleeder today so hopefully this should be painless to do single handed

Just make sure you bleed in the correct order. Do a search here to find. Other than that, it is easy. Use good fluid also.

Do you have flare nut wrenches? I would recommend you get some for this task, if you don't have them already.

Get good flair nut wrenches. Cheap ones WILL screw you over on the tights line nuts.

The speed bleeder nuts are also bad ass. They definately make it a one person job. They are worth the money for sure, especially if you bleed the brakes often (tracked car, high hummidity, etc.)

good flair nut wrenches will screw you over just as well if the nuts are on tight...been there.
The nuts are soft brass on the hardline ends, use some liquid wrench and clean off with brake cleaner if needed...hope you dont have to resort to vice grips though they will ultimately do the job.
