Default Robbie's ugly brake upgrade.

'03 had the original brake lines so I thought I would upgrade to steel ones.

Right side is fine.
Left side line too long and switch mount is not a match since the original has an integrated bracket at a specific angle.
I ended up using a hose clamp so it works but it looks like crud.

Cut the excess off the clamp. Use a black spring clamp unless pressure is a issue .

Personally, I'd go back to stock or with another vendor's part. I like upgrades, but hate universal* parts!
