Hi,my names Scott.I have a 82 model XE Falcon that i am getting back on the road.I changed the diff from the Borg Warner to 9 inch ,at the same time changing from drums to discs on the rear,so now the car has discs all round.Now i need to change the front brake lines as they have a different setup from disc/drum to disc/disc.The new master cylinder i got has only two hole for lines to go into wether the old one has three holes.
I found a diagram in a workshop manual which shows the lines i need.Where abouts in the Sydney area can i get the brake lines i require?? Either from a wreckers or new ones made up.Im close to having this car back on the road and this is delaying me at the moment.
Below is diagram with highlighted section being the brake lines i need.Cheers.Scott.

THe 2 hole/line master cylinder is a ESP part, the lines for it will be next to impossible to find, and if you do find them they will cost you a mint, sell it on ebay and them go buy a 3 hole/line master cylinder and pocket the extra cash. :)
