    I looking for some ideas on where to move the passenger side front brake line. I want to get it off the firewall. I’m thinking the front or back of the k member, what have you guys done?

    I put mine behind the pinch weld at firewall then up the top of pass side rail.Instead of going under the frame rail and back up I went through the inner fender opening backside of shock tower.Heres a pic.There was clearance around it but slid a small piece of clear snowmobile fuel line over it before I double flared, just to be sure it didn't rub.

    '69 C-body ran along the front near the radiator. No reason you couldn't run it along the k-member, but I would make sure it wasn't in a place that could easily get damaged or would be in the way of a sway bar.
