HHHmmm, If you knew the scrutiny that A&P aviation parts and parts
manufacturers go through, I don't anyone would be "f'ing" crazy to use them
for auto applications which are generally a down grade in quality. While
the loss of a hard brake line would probably be a serious Maalox moment,last
time I checked the hand brake lever was connnected to 2 fully functioning
calipers by mechanical, not hydraulic means and should provide some what
more than "-zero- stopping ability"
PS, you still working on Bose speakers?

If you think I'd do that with a caliper brake line, you're f'ing crazy.
Sorry. For critical safety components for the car, I don't screw
around. If a front line bursts, the pedal will go to the floor
instantly and you will have -zero- stopping ability.
