From: Spencer Hutchings (firstname.lastname@example.org),BR> Subject: (rx7)  Do it yourself -3AN clutch or front brake lines.
For those interested in building their own clutch and or brake lines with AN hardware I have learned the following.
Clutch line parts from Russell:
Part Number Description Price Qty Per Box 3069 -3 Stainless Steel Hose Line $ 6.14 1 foot 2013 -3 Hose End $12.84 1 4141 -3 Male to 10mm x 1.0 Female $17.13 2
So that would be $48.95 to build a bullet proof clutch line. The front brake lines are identical in construction to the clutch line you could build a couple of those as well just as easily.
The parts may be considerably less from someplace like Summit or Jegs. No reason why you couldn't use Earls or Aeroquip for that matter. I e-mailed Russell and they offered to build them for $69.00ea. They were also kind enough to supply the exact parts breakdown. Seemed like a real nice company to deal with.
Note: I bought a set of SS (stainless steel) brake lines, and they came with an SS clucth line. Not quite as nice as Spencers, but should be alot better than stock. --Steve
