Hopefully, someone will be able to supply the images you requested in time to validate the line position and shape.  FYI - SS can become unforgiving, depending on the grade, as it work hardens when bending.  Do your best to keep tweaking to a minimum.

Hopefully all will be needed is small tweaks here and there.  These Inline Tube lines are "supposedly Pre Bent" for the application what ever that is. But on the other hand like every thing else on the Market these days for Restoration Parts they need to be "Massaged" some.

I broke my femur like 5 weeks ago, so this is all the pics I can give you at the moment...Not doing much crawling right now. No reason to show you the route to the cooler on the radiator,  I use two coolers on the front of the radiator, so mine is different. This is a 93 chevy.

You can install cooler lines on the vehicle right?. I don't know, doesn't seem hard to me. I ran tubing for years as an EI&C tech. I'll find you a couple more pictures to ease the mind.


Fabricating lines is not difficult.  Possessing experience makes it much easier.  Since the SS lines that mikiesride is using are prefab, I suggest it would be best to wait until the engine and transmission are in place and then massage them exactly for a perfect visual and functional fit at that time rather than fret prematurely.

It is becoming progressively rarer to find anything that fits and functions as it should right out of the box.  True quality and precision of manufacture these days are little more than a dusty memory.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!
