    Ugh. So sad about your wonderful S19 thread.

    Anyway, I would like to redo my photos from all my previous posts if you could re enable the edit feature for me that would be great.

    Project does look great! I actually had a deposit on a S16 for quite some time. Life happens and I backed out before they started shipping kits.

    Might I suggest you do away with the plastic brake lines and go with the 1/8" steel braided flexible lines. Especially if your going with wheel pants. Calipers get hot and line loosens in the Ferrel and then leaks all over your pads. I continually having to tighten mine on the 19 to avoid this and it doesn't have pants! One of these days I'll switch to them from the caliper to the belly skin...maybe when I hit 1000hrs....LOL

    Thanks Glen. It is progressing very slowly, but I like how it's turning out, and I'm really enjoying the process. I like how your S-19 turned out and I wish we had gotten to see how an S-16 built by you would have turned out.

    Thanks for the advice on the brake lines. I will look into it. Can you recommend a specific one or shoot me a link?

    I have finished updating links to all pictures in my build thread. BTW, I tried both recommendations, imgur and postimg. I couldn't get the pictures to appear the right size with imgur. I switched to postimg and found it worked better and was more user friendly.

    Rans supplies them with the S20 kit. You might call them or MATCO to get a better feel for what you need.

    But here's a video of an installation on an RV-10. You'll need the lines and the pipe to flare fittings. Might get your measurements and then call Bonaco and see if they can make up a kit for you.

    Thanks for the information Glenn. I will definitely be looking into it. Hate to do things twice, but this would be MUCH more difficult for me to address after engine is installed.

    Thank you Paul! I will do my best to keep everyone up to date with the highlights. Unfortunately highlights don't happen very often as you can probably tell from my thread. I appreciate the encouragement!
