Eric, do you remember the size of those unions for the brake lines? And where you got them? I need the same for mine, since the PDWA was missing from my car, and no need, for me, to replace it. Car looks great too!! Supposed to get over freezing here this weekend again. Yay!

Hello Jim, thanks for the kind words. The PDWA turned out to be a bit more than just deleting it adding the unions (which was my original plan). The fittings at the PDWA are different sized (front vs rear), I completely struck out finding the correct unions, so I gave up and had a local outfit 'Classic Tube' in Lancaster NY remove the originals and replace them with two standard (1/8th I think) unions and fittings with triple flares. Probably not what you wanted for an answer though, sorry.

a-ha! That 'plains why I couldn't find one union off the shelf that would work. Thanks Eric.
