Chase does the brake line tucks ;) I think he sells a kit but I'm not for sure. His prices are insanely good, too.

www.chasebaysonline.com

$250 all OEM, the A.N. stuff will run you more.
I think i will do the brake line tuck when i put my roll cage and yeah the prices on all chasebays stuff is really good, but most of this tuck is going to be D.I.Y. just for the experience. so next time i do this i will be a lot fast. :thumbup:

i hear that it is a lot of work, and also since you still aren't sure if you even want to keep the em1 why tuck it..... :p
