Plus 2 front and rear brake pipe brackets

PostPost by: Matt Elan » Sat Mar 26, 2016 2:42 pm

Afternoon all
I've just started to make up the brake lines for my Plus 2 and having build the rolling chassis up from several boxes of bits, I'm missing the brackets which fit onto the calliper bolt and support the connection between the short (and bendy) solid pipe from the calliper to the flexible hose. Has anyone got their dimensions or a picture of them so I can fabricate a pair? I would imagine they are the same as those shown in Brian Buckland's book but just need to confirm....
Also I suspect I may run into the same problem at the rear end as I've not got any of the shields for the rear suspension; again has anyone got pictures or dimensions for the solid to flexible join support?
Many thanks
Matt

Simple L shaped brackets at the front Matt - I made mine to suit rather than from a pattern.

At the rear, there should already be brackets on your Spyder chassis
