Ok here's my solution for a bracket to hold the brake line in place.

Started with some 1" strips of stainless steel.








And mounted up. It holds the brake line nice and secure and allows enough slack in the hose for the suspension at full drop and a full left turn.




And mounted to the caliper. (Ignore the extra washers on the bolt holding the bracket onto the caliper, I didn't have the correct length bolt on hand to mock it up :-).






This picture is at full right turn with the suspension at full bottom travel. I had to mount the brake hose where I did to get clearance for the spring. I used a piece of rubber hose and a clamp to secure the hose. The clamp is spread apart and one side of the clamp mounted on each side of the bolt hole, if the clamp is mounted on the back side only there isn't enough clearance for the spring.

Well there goes many of my projects.

How much higher will this end up being compared to stock?
Is the previous owner local? I wonder what he/ she would think of this machine once it is finished.

Thanks, I'm shooting for May but we'll see. Lots of small items to go still.

It will be about 3" higher than stock with the lift and taller tires. Yeah the original owner is local, I'll be driving it over there for her to look at once completed :-)

Time to get the seat installed again.

Pulling out the old 3/8" cork material. A small leak in the rear heater had deteriorated them. Good time to replace it while its apart.




Laying down some Dynamat sound deadening material in the low spots before re-installing the new boards.




Got a good deal on some 3/8" finished oak plywood, here I'm replicating the old cork material.




That's better.




My friend Mike helping out, here he's removed the old propane tank. I'll be replacing it with the new unit that holds 10% more.




Had to do a little trim work to get the new tank to fit, it was off by 1/8". I think I'm going to undercoat the ends on the tank as well as the bottom gaurd/bracket to keep them from getting chipped up from rocks and rusting.




More progress tomorrow.

Be careful with dissimilar materials on a fuel cell. Knowing you it will be well grounded but could tell you stories about unintended capacitive effects.g

The tank is steel so it shouldn't have any dissimilar metal issues :-)
