    brake rubber hoses in Melb. Any PF'ers?

    I need a few rubber brake hoses made up (and a clutch hose). Anyone in Melb make them so I can throw some money at you, or anyone got a recommendation around the CBD or inner eastern suburbs. Would like to avoid being raped by ABS again after the last $60 hose.

    Last set I had made (many many moons ago) was via enzed. Just tell them they are clutch lines, as IIRC they are not allowed to make brake lines.
    .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

    The local Enzed up here has the correct "Brakequip" machine for doing approved hoses .

    Could try this http://www.brakequip.com.au/find-manufacturer

    ^ Thanks for that link Greg, rung the place in Malvern, battled peak hour traffic both ways and dropped off the hose this morning. After useless fucks at Repco and Bursons, I asked if they could reco the slave and master as well for the clutch. Guy behind the counter was more than happy to help out. Winning.

    If you could that would be handy lightyear (or drop me a PM). The place in Malvern isn't open on Sat which is a pain in the arse.

    They did all my MX5 lines while I waited. Very quick.

    2 hour drive yesterday to get down to Better Brakes @ Braeside but worth it. Picked up a box of bits and pieces, some new lines and some other associated crap. Cheers for the heads up lightyear.
