    I would stick with the 5/16" nylon if you're staying carb. Worked for 40 years. I used 3/8 and 5/16 NiCopp on my FI Terra.

    I agree, and have a roll of 5/16" nylon but in thinking about the possible upgrades in the future figured that EFI is a possibility, so running the 3/8 NiCopp now sounds like a good idea.

    Labor Day weekend was beautiful here in E Tenn, so got my frame cleaned up -wire wheel/angle grinder, medial blaster & gallons of greaser. A couple coats of etching primer hopefully will protect it for the next 30 years, and next step is to cover with Raptor bed liner. Also cleaned up the axles, etching primer & Rust-Oleum - we'll see how that holds up over time. Brakes were all new the last time I drove it ~ 15-20 years ago, so I'll take them apart and clean up hoping everything is still right & tight.

    We got ~ 3 coats of Raptor bedliner on the frame last night. With the etching primer and Raptor bedliner I think the frame is ready for another 40-50 years. Now I can start putting my Traveller back together... slow and steady, right?

    Got the Rough Country 2.5" kit installed after stripping, priming & painting (Raptor bed liner) the springs. Also installed Energy Suspension bushings, so hopefully they will outlast me. Also used D&C Extreme spring shackles, front and back, and made the stock sway bar fit by modifying the original shackles.

    Started adding the new Inline Tube SS brake lines and IH Parts America SS flex hoses, and ran into a small issue. Where the heck is that little Tee fitting that goes on the driver's side front line? I looked for hours for the little brass fitting, and then thought that maybe I was smart and left it attached to the original flex hose... sure enough, there it was...

    Ahh the sweet pics of success! One thing to watch on your rear flexible IH Parts America brake line will be your exhaust will run right close to it. You'll see what I am talking about when you get there.

    Started the fit-up of the fiberglass parts this beautiful weekend - I have the Kentrol tub, outer fenders, windshield frame and grill in fiberglass with new Kentrol steel inner fender walls (and my original steel hood). I assumed that as I purchased everything from Kentrol circa ~2007 (its all been laid up in a garage until recently) that the pieces would fit together like Legos, but no, that's not the case. I am going to have to start doing some trimming and will need some professional help, luckily my neighbor is a body guy. There is going to be some serious grinding and shaping on the outer fenders to get them to fit!
