The time has come to replace the break lines – the front right one started leaking and it’s my luck that it didn’t blow out on the way.
The break lines prices vary and I managed to purchase two of them for about 15$ – this is just for you to have a rough estimate. Now let’s get to business.
If you want to make an “everlasting” break line you are going to need a 6,4-mm heat shrink tube that can be bought in almost any shop that sells electronic components. After that you will need to let a mechanic put them on. Here is what you get as a result:
To make the tube tight enough you will need a heat gun.
Warm up the tube at a steady pace.
You can see the difference:
If the length of one tube (approximately 3 feet) is not enough, overlap the second one:
And here’s what we finally get as a result:
I can’t give an exact estimate on how long will it serve you but I’m sure they will outlive your car.
