hey ripracer, i can get you whatever length you line, and it won't be more than the 30 dollar add on...

but considering you want a custom setup, i'd recommend doing it local, so you can take the car there and have it measured exactly etc etc...

again i can do it for you, but i don't wanna get in the situation of mailing **** back and forth from florida....

again trying to look out of for you.....

flipt86 you have been added to the list...

GOT THE PROTOTYPES IN, CHECK PICTURES BELOW....
after looking at the advance one, yes we did get our hands on one to check it for measurements etc.... we made some improvements, we also made improvements on the stainless lines....

if you notice from the prototypes all the lines are fixed, i.e. the banjo's etc on the brake lines... and the fittings on the advanced stainless clutch line are fixed as well...

which means installation, maintenance, and repair will be a bitch to get the lines in and out...

if you check out samnavy's thread in the "useful saved threads" forum, https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t20209/

you will notice that he recommends putting the advanced clutch line on the slave cylinder on a work bench... well, we cam up with a way that will be very easy to install, and remove!!

pictures below...

generic shitty shot of the blck and clear, the black looks bad ***, and is glossy and smooth... and clear is clear...



below is a picture of the connection to the firewall... again moving away from the advanced unit, the fitting to the hardline on the firewall uses stock hardware to install, again, we thought this would be useful and convenient... and as mentioned above installation will be easier... simply install the adaptor, and then connect the line to the adaptor... if you ever need to remove simply undo the line, and leave the adaptor in place...


below is a picture of the other side of the clutch line that goes into the slave cylinder... as noted above simply undo the stock clutch line and throw away, then simply screw in the adaptor male piece make tight and then put line on... again this is easier to install and maintenance will be easier than the advance unit that does not have the ability to spin freely, what i mean by this is the little hex part on the lines spins freely, so you can simply tighten it down, and or remove it simply!

EDIT: IN THE PHOTO BELOW THE ADAPTOR SHOULD GO THE OTHER WAY, THE POINTED END SHOULD GO INTO THE LINE AND THE FLAT SIDE INTO THE SLAVE... FYI...



again, we will be making all the brake lines with this easier installation, removal, and maintenance....

having this additional piece of hardware costs more, DON'T WORRY I'M NOT AN *******, I'M NOT RAISING THE PRICE.... just wanted to let you guys know i'm trying to bring you the best **** out there...

EDIT: P.S. THE 65 DOLLAR ADVANCED LINE IS NOT COATED... FYI....

MY EXPLANATIONS CAN BE WEIRD, ANY QUESTIONS ETC, HIT ME UP,
[email protected]
AND OR PM...

lol, i was just talking to someone about that today... someone local is picking up one of the clutch lines, so we are going to document etc...

instead of us sending instructions, we will post a picture tutorial on how to change out the clutch line here....

however, for the brakes, we are not going to post a tutorial... if you are not comfortable changing the brake lines, we recommend taking it to a professional...if you plan on doing it yourself, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE POSITION AND ROTATION OF THE BRAKE LINES FOR THE FRONT... if you don't understand why this is so important, then take it to a professional,
YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO A HACK JOB WITH YOUR BRAKES... lol....

Default clutch line installation

1. go look at this how to by samnavy
https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t20209/

2. remove the stock line including the curly q


3. install adaptor into the hard line bracket on the fire wall. the orientation of the spacer should be self evident




4. install adaptor into the slave cylinder... we removed the front passenger side tire for photo purposes only, with the front of the car jacked up, you can simply install the adaptor using a 15mm wrench... very easy...


5. route the stainless clutch line down, and simply tighten the line onto the adaptors...




edit: it took 30 minutes to remove the stock line, 15 minutes to install the new clutch line, and 10 minutes to bleed the system...

of course chinese money may not actually be green and there are other translations of the word "dao" that refer to taoism, but whatever. that's another lesson.
