Thumbs up Great answer

Hi AussieT100
You have now set the bar as far as answering threads, congratulations, you win a free set of steak knife's.
I've just changed the brake lines and found the original bolts a wee bit hard to get out, useing metric as I was told all bolts were that,I thought some one had rounded of the tips, till I checked out my mate's yesturday and saw his wwere the same
The bolts that came with the HEL line's were no probs.
Cheers Doug
