    If you have to make even one flare, I'd suggest that tool, it makes it that easy. It's almost as if your $100 bills get up and flare the brake line yourself while you sit on the couch and drink beer. It's one of those tools I bought to use once or twice and end up using it over and over and over. Definitely have gotten my money's worth from using it or renting it.

    Also in the pic you can see the new fuel lines I ran as well as the stainless brake line. I surprisingly enough had no problem with all my flares I needed to make which were 7. The hydraulic press was amazing made it to where a monkey could do it.

    I ordered some 42 lb injectors and a 90 km lightning maf I don't have a pic of the mad but here's one of the injectors and fuel rail installed.

    Not much going on around here got my tires dismounted and sent out my injectors to get rebuilt and flow matched after I felt some of the pintle caps were pretty loose and filter were atrocious. Once I get my injectors back I'll be able to at least get some of this mess of a wiring system up.

    They have no predators in our waters since in salt water sharks and things will eat them in fresh watee they wont survive so brackish its too fresh for sharks but rays are ok and they destroy the oyster beds and eats crabs and us marylanders love our crabs

    No bull sharks in Maryland? In Fl bull and blacktips are super common in brackish estuaries and bayous.

I get a turn sognal to turn on but not flash i have no brake lights my third light wont come on i do have a radio blower wheel windows defrost so i got to get some more ground straos to ground everything right now i have the block to battery connection made
