I am changing out my plastic brake lines from the foot peddle brake cyl to the brake wheel calipers. Bonaco Pegasus makes RV4 brake lines #3 with #4 AN fittings. Anyone have any dealings with Bonaco. or should I just make up 1/4 inch aluminum brake lines :?

They say the Bonaco likes are great!

machine Man has them on his seven and likes them.

I had communications problems with Brett, so I just went ahead and made my own.

Either way, you get a nice product!

I have the Bonaco flexible lines on my RV-7 to and from the firewall to the brakes in the fuselage. They work great, and Brett @ Bonaco was great to deal with. I went with 1/4" aluminum tubing from my firewall to the brake calipers - Cheap, low profile and they work great.
