No loop either. I ended up shortening mine so they wouldn't chafe against the fairings. Tom is just the greatest to work with.

Default A little off topic, but

I just received and installed my TS Flightlines brake hoses and am very impressed with the product, glad I did this. I don't think I will ever have leak issues with this as I have had for years in the 6A with the NylaFlow stuff. Here are some pics of my installation. Tom, feel free to use these for any need you may have. Great working with you, and I will be calling again when it's engine FWF time

(I will add caterpillar edge trim in the brace to protect the interconnecting hoses there. Hose ends were slightly too large for any snap bushings I had on hand.)

An aside - these holes in the "firewall brace" (don't have plans in front of me for part #'s) on the right hand side of the firewall recess box... are they for a purpose? On the left hand side, they attach to the rudder pedal torque tube center brace and the firewall recess with flush rivets. These holes appear to be a mirror image of the other side, but not sure what purpose they serve. Match drill the stainless and rivet? Or leave alone? Not sure if these are factory holes or something the previous builder added.

Default Looking good Bill---

you can also use grommets in the pedal brace for the crossover hoses. Some builders even make an angled bracket and use 2 adel clamps.

Looks good!
