Yeah i dont like the braided line either so i cleaned it up today and made in more tidy and fixed up some other lines, I will get some pics up of what it looks like now so you can see the difference. I got the line fixed this arvo but had problems bleeding the brakes and actually cracked the $hits and im bad when i crack it so i have to walk away before i break something on it so i left it in the shed, so im not coming tomorrow which is abit of a bummer. As for asking about the outside i dont mind telling it how it is and its not an a$$hole of a question, the body is not the greatest... I need to give it a full respray, new bumpers, rust cut out of from window, retrim interior. So as you can see its only the driveline done and the body needs alot of TLC. I can get up some pics for you guys so you can see what i am talking about.

the only thing about moving it is that is all drains back to the sump with -10an braided line and drains to the drivers side. So i would have to change it all but im not going to bother for the moment maybe later on. Im not sure if i am going to spray this shell as i am wanting a mini tubbed car and if i get that i will have to re-engineer the car anyways so i am looking at getting a shell and tubbing it over time and just driving this car as it is for the moment till the shell is complete so i dont loose interest in the car. But i may still cage this so i can race it and play around till my tubbed shell is complete.
