    Default R8/10 hard brake line location

    This is something I didn't take a picture of, actually, there are lots of things I didn't take pictures of. I also don't seem to have kept the old one, the new one will be routed slightly differently due to the adjustable proportioning valve.

    Where does the hard brake line from front to rear usually run? Is there a particular set of holes it'r meant to go through?

    Any pictures anyone has will help.

    I can look/take photos tomorrow. The white car is currently up on ramps. Ironically, one of the next jobs is pull the handbrake out.
    I've been delaying it as I need to pull the seats out to get access.

    The brake line runs down the left of the car roughly in line with where the proportioning valve normally is. There are a couple of half saddle clips that hold it in place. If you use those as a guide the rest should sort itself out, it I'll see what I can get tomorrow.

    The only hole to worry about is the small grommeted hole on the passenger side of the gearstick hole. You will see a small hole and grommet in the small guide rail that runs from left to right across the car. from there it just seems to follow through the main large centre holes but to the LHS as described above. The threads for the saddle clips give a clue as to its' path. I can email some photos but not sure how well the detail will show.
