brakes and gas lines

Where is the best place to get gas and brake lines?
I have a 76 CJ-5 that I just stripped down to the frame.

I just got the body off, dropped the gas tank, and yanked the exhaust pipes and manifolds. I air blasted the frame quickly to get off the majority of junk.

Frame is straight(except rear cross member, needs replacing), and everything else looks great. I want to replace the links to the brakes and gas tank after I get the frame sandblasted and por-15'ed up. So, if anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

Also, one last thing. It appears that the line from the charcoal canister? to the rear of the jeep was melted on the exhaust pipe. The hose was green. Is this original or no? I just thought it was a little strange. No idea how long this has been like this so I don't know if it could have caused any damage or not. I am just glad all that stuff is off, helps a lot when there is another person helping ya out.

Stainless Steel !

Look in the back of Truck Mag and you will see different suppliers for pre-bent tubes ($$$).
My be Napa could supply S/S tubing and you could bend your own.
That's what I am doing.
Stainless is the only way to go, keep it high on the frame.

Good Luck,


Do it right the first time !

Check 4WD Hardware. They have them for $169.99. The small soft lines are about $50 for the fronts. The rear is $40 or so.
