It is always lovely to run across a post about an upgrade after you have already purchased the kits. I just got my finishing kit. Does Van's allow you to return things for a refund?

It would be nice to make upgrade now, when everything is out in the open versus later.

Vans policy is for full refunds in returns. I've never done it but I've got a little box of stuff to send back.

I purchased the Aircraft Specialty brake line kit. Will the ends on the lines fit this kit? Or is this kit metric and the Aircraft specialty kit standard?

I think the ACS kit is the same one you buy directly from Beringer. It's all AN4 fittings, so no metric that I found (at least in the brake lines).

Ken and others, we are working out the details of the Beringer install, not only for the RV14 and 14A, but the other Vans planes as well. The plan is to have crimped on banjo hose ends to connect directly to the Beringer masters and calipers, and AN fittings at the airframe bulkhead connections, like the gear passthroughs, and the reservoir. This is for the initial install. We are also working on a retrofit using the Beringer components with our existing brake hoses, if the client had previously purchased them. That way you dont have to buy another set of teflon hoses.

Hope to have a couple of beta testers lined up to check geometries, etc soon.

Ken--The Aircraft Specialty/TS Flightlines packages are for AN fittings, and the Beringer is for 10mm Banjo connections. They arent interchangeable, BUT, we have a client that we sent some banjo adapters to so he could convert the Banjo connection to AN. Havent heard back yet. For previously installed masters, calipers, and hoses, this would be a simple upgrade, without the expense of purchasing all new hoses.
