    Does anyone have a source and even possibly some part numbers for stainless steel Braided brake lines to use with Stock front Maverick Disc Brakes ?

    I also need the Body to Axle Hose for the rear brakes.

    Summit has more braided flex hose than they show online. Might have to take a road trip with old brake hose in hand

    you can contact Nick directly, he can custom make any line to whatever length you require, along with that
    distribution block/hose for the rear brake.

    Brake Hoses Unlimited is where I got mine. They had the whole set. You can check them out online at www.brakehoses.biz or contact Nick Christman (616) 836-7885 or email him at goodbrakes@brakehoses.biz. If he does not have them stock he can make them.

    I'll make my own when the time comes, some hose, a couple fittings and a hammer and chisel to crimp with! :coco: I kid...we have a Brakequip setup at work so I can build brake hoses! :thumbs2:

    I tried a few times to get in touch with Nick through new years week with no luck and decided maybe he was just closed for the holiday. Then I got him on the phone on 1/5/15 and explained what I needed and gave him the color choices I had already made after looking at his ebay page. He was very easy to work with and said he would get the order made up and sent out right away... I received the Brake lines on 1/8/15 and I am VERY happy with them. The quality is top notch and I will definitely be ordering from him again for my other cars.
    I ordered the two front hoses for a 1976 Disc brake Maverick and the rear (body to axle) hose for a 1972 V-8 Maverick.
    He said there several different variations for Mavericks and made sure we had everything right before hanging up.

    All three hoses shipped to my door was $82.90

    Isn't it nice to deal with people that care enough to put the effort in to get it right the first time?

    Isn't that the truth! That is one thing I drive home to the guys at work, the customer is your best friend and you don't want to see him again unless it's for something different. A guy should never have to come back for the same hose unless he made a mistake or miscalculation on his length. We want our customers to come to us because they view us as the all knowing experts in our field.

    Yes, it's a great resource to know of, since rear flex hoses are getting harder to find.
