Vl brake lines connect to Vt calipers?

Do the vl brake lines connect to the Vt calipers or do i need an adaptors? If so where can I get these adaptors? Also any tips on getting the brake line nuts off mine are proper stuck on and i dont want to round the nut.

Cheers.

Use vice grips. If you round them, it's cheap to get replacements made at ABS brakes etc.

Really? Damm I already orders master adaptors and when you did your calpiers did the lines look a bit short they look like they should be fine but just want to double check. Other than that they look awesome cant wait to feel the diffrance

boosted wagon that is so dodgy! You should NEVER mix single and double flared brake lines. Yes they might have the same screw in fitting and screw up tight but the design is different and for something as important as brakes you want everything 100%.

BronsonVL you need conversion hoses which are VT type hoses with the VL double flare end to join the steel pipe. You also need to secure it to the strut so the hose does not have the possibility of touching the tyre.

Single (left) and double (right) flares. VR onwards has the single flare.

I agree. I have tryed this. They don't seal. Can be dangerous. Just get a double flare kit( should be steel line rated) and reflare the lines with the correct screw in thingy. Or take em to a auto machine shop. Cheers dan
