I have come up with a worry free way to eliminate broken and cracked vacuum lines from the vacuum reservoirs inside the fender to the solenoids on the strut tower. Use 5/16 brake tubing, cut, bend, and reuse the rubber fittings to connect to the solenoids. Here is a photo of what they look like.

Good deal. Brake line is cheap and easy to bend. How did you figure out that it would work?

Here are some photos of the ones on my car for A/C, the first set is for cars without A/C. I originally said 5/16, which they are not, they are 3/16 brake tubing. Sorry for the misinformation.

I'll bet you could sell those on Ebay. Cool idea and you don't have to worry about the hoses cracking or breaking off.
