Pictures of Driver's Side Rear Brake Line Needed!

Hi, I've been doing work on my 88 TA, and I noticed something.......odd. By "odd", I mean "The previous owner had a cranium full of gravel". Turns out, the brake line to the driver's side rear caliper is HARD LINED, instead of having the hard line leading to a rubber tube, as is SAFE AND OPERABLE. Anyhow, in reconstructing my poor, victimized brakes, I'd like to see if any of you could provide a picture of the end of the brake line leading to the driver's side rear caliper, where the hard line attaches to the soft line, so that I can rebuild this the proper way.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

That's normal, and how the Delco Moraine rear calipers were plumbed.

Well, my passenger rear caliper has a soft line (about 6" long) leading from the hard line to the caliper. The driver's side is just plumbed directly into the caliper, and is obviously hacked together.

That is the way GM pumped them out of the factory. The Driver side was hard lined from the tee but the passenger for some reason had a hose from the caliper. This is not hacked together, it is from the factory. Try looking up a brake hose for it and you will only get the center hose and the and the passenger.

Re: Pictures of Driver's Side Rear Brake Line Needed!

Can someone provide pictures so that I can compare an absolutely correct example to my own car? I realize my poor explanation may be frustrating, so before I **** anyone else off, I'd like to close this topic with a definitive, non-verbal example. I really respect everyone on here, so I'd like to avoid burning any bridges with this helpful community.

I was going to take a picture of my TTA rear brake line till I seen it has the hose. 1LE brakes are different. My GTA was in storage so I couldn't get a picture of it either.
