    I have a chunk out of a front brake line and need to make a replacement for MOT purposes.

    From the pic below, can anyone give a view on whether the flexi lines I have are the stock version, or whether they have been changed over the years. Note that the brakes themselves are converted to Toyota S12+8 callipers, but the original S30 spec flexi lines might have been retained.

    Like Derrick says, braided hoses are they way to go. Call Mr.F at MJP Eastern Autos. He will no doubt sort you a set.

    They are probably standard but the joint should be supported by a bracket on the strut.

    Mike is sorting me out with some braided fronts. Does anyone have a photo of the supporting bracket that should come from the strut to the end of the hard line ?
