No that was it, Makes sense, I think I interpreted anytime you said cut the fitting to cutting the fitting out and in that process I assumed a slit on the bracket was impossible to avoid. So good to know, THanks. I will have to modify my own becase I won't grace you with my rusty devils on exchange!!

no worries--they clean up fine with a visit to the blast cabinet!

Are your brackets actually rusty? Where did your car start out?

Miami then New Jersey, always close to salt water I guess. Got a white scaley corrosion all over the engine. Makes cleaning up parts very satisfying!

and we all know the Pacific Ocean is less harsh than the Atlantic....but I also realize Azusa would be a desert were it not for water being shipped into SoCal!

Well, let me know if you change your mind and I'm able to help--no different than what you've done for others, including me. You never know if you might wish to have a pair of spare brackets anyway. There are at least a few SS owners out there who have installed G8 hoses and ought to be changing them out, but, with no leaks, they may not care.

One of the things I'm thinking about is that those who HAVE installed G8 hoses and end up taking them off will have a potential issue with damage to their flare fittings (hard line side)--more significant, anyone removing the G8 hoses won't likely find another buyer for them, and the front hose brackets from a G8 kit should work on a PPV or SS, so I'll be addressing that to at least one of the guys in the SS group I know, who lives in Covina, and has TWO SS's. It won't likely free up any brackets since anyone changing to the correct (inverted flare) hoses should be able to re-use the G8 brackets.

Yes that will be a tough call for folks who have installed the incorrect fitting to take them off and potentially be looking at a damaged fitting that might leak even with the correct new hose used. Hopefully the flexible hose fitting deformed and not that hard line. But that's just wishful thinking.

Trying to get through my strut and lowering project now should be ready for the brakes in a few months, may get with you then. Firggin heat has got to let up for me to get anything done.. 108 degrees this week.

Like I said, if it wasn't for the imported H2O, that place would be a desert--you might as well be in Palm Springs. Santa Ana conditions, or something else???
