Default Bonneville brake hoses

I need to get some extended front brake hoses, prefer to upgrade to stainless, as well get rear stainless hoses.

Fronts need to be about 20.5" long, have a 10mm banjo and an M10x1.0 bubble flare fitting.

Rears are 12-3/8" and have the M10x1.0 fitting on both ends.

I couldn't find a vendor that has these pre-made, don't have the tools/supplies to try making my own. Where can I get something made (for a not-insane price)?

16" Lines for the front
12" Lines for the rear

Back in the day, I send stock lines to ZZP and told them the extra length I needed. They made a batch for the 00+ Bonnevilles. I had the F-Body front brakes up front.

You might try this place for custom lines:
CUSTOM STAINLESS STEEL BRAIDED BRAKE LINES

Stainless Brake Lines - Suspension & Brakes

Select the longer option. That makes the fronts 20 for bonnies.

That's odd, when I go to ZZPs site from my home computer I get the old interface and none of the dropdown menus worked so I thought they were no longer offering extended lines.

3" longer because I'm setting up a 13.4" Z51 rotor and needed to re-clock the F-body caliper so the bolt heads clear the knuckle.

ZZP is out of the fronts, and they ignored the part in my email asking about getting the rears custom made.

you might try just getting -3/-4 an lines and buying the banjo and hardline fittings....if your close to needing new lines you can just use the cheaper SAE inverted flare stuff

I'm not sure where I can find stuff like that. The lines I know about are only rated to 800 psi and I don't know where to find high-pressure rated ends that as far as I can tell have to be crimped on.

russel and others have brake stuff- summit-jegs et c. we used the 35" 10mm to -3an fittings on the front of the mustang to make sure we could clear the larger cobra calipers when he gets em.

Kevlar hoses? Sounds good, price is better than SS braided hose, any reason not to give it a try?

as long as its the std teflon liner id bet it'd be alright...but keep in mind the non stainless braids will be less abrasion resistant. not to mention i do not think it'd be DOT legal

just keep in mind that the fluid inside the line will be at high pressure and high temperature with radiant heat coming off the caliper/rotor well over the 300 odd degree's of the brake fluid.

probably be fine....might not
