SS lines weather custom or bought...i took the rubber ones that came with the kit in and they measured off those to make my custom ones.....or order ones from russell...but i personally think custom adds that much more of a custom touch

Yea, I don't have any rubber ones to go off of. I got mine from a guy with a burned SVT and he didn't pull the lines to send me, so I've got everything but that

you could always just grab some wire/vacumm line/string leave a little slack and measure the length.

Isn't there a hardline to the rear on the SVT that is needed to run the rear SVT russels?
And good idea pistolgrip, any suggestions on where to find the stainless steel line and fittings? I have no clue what fittings i'm supposed to use

This is the link to the thread that I created to show what I did to make the russel lines work on my brake swap:
SVT rear brake lines
I believe that if you call russel they can make a one piece rear kit for you. I think F2 makes a kit with a one piece rear line on it.

The fittings are custom made. Just a 3" piece of brake line with 2 couplers and then the line was bubble flaired. If you do not have the tools to do the bubble flair you could have a shop make up the connectors for you. Shouldn't cost more than $15-$20 or so. Just make sure that it is a bubble flair or it won't seal with the russel lines.

Does anyone know where I could actually buy the fittings that attach to the calipers? My dad used to do stainless lines on aircraft, so if we can find the fittings to go on the ends of each line, we can custom fab the whole thing and not have to buy the russels
