cool, let me know how the installation goes, and if you have any questions feel free to post, so we can share the info...

just so everyone knows, the fittings for the clutch lines are different from the brake lines... so don't be switching that **** around... lol...

My clutch line arrived yesterday. It will be a while before I get a chance to install it, but it looks like a good piece.

Clutch line will be the only part I might install myself. Gonna have the brake lines done for me, I'm not good with that shiz.

Just got mine this morning; top notch parts.
I've got to re-assemble my car at the bodyshop before I can install them though.

Am I correct that it`s $35 for the clutch line (that also removes the Q)?

How much would shipping to Norway be?
(Shouldnt be too much via usps).

Cash is ready for paypaling

i though about that... but i didn't want one of the lines to poke through the box, and then cause one of the parts to be lost.... it was worth it for the piece of mind to get everything to you safer than sorry... lol... i had to get a special envelope just for you, lol...

Seems your thread is gone on cr.
Depending on the price for just the clutch line, I`m in asap on the cr.net gb, if it comes back..

I immediately regret my decision to do the clutch line myself. That upper bracket is ******* hiding. No idea how I'm going to get it off.

I might do what this guy did and leave it there.

::edit::

finally finished and cleaned up, except for my dirty fingernails

driving impression= clutch feels the same, not impressed

did you think it was gonna be amazing? lol there are 2 soft lines, you might* feel a difference with both, i'll let you know, but it makes things easier to take on and off, and looks prettier lol
