I can definitely say I've learned a lot through the whole process and although some of them are frustrating they still present opportunities to learn. As for running the lines through the frame, uhm not really. The crossmember that is shown in the picture obviously holds the transmission and the brake booster/MC and pedal assembly bolt it. The crossmember is riveted to the frame rails but Ford left some small gaps between the crossmember and frame rail and that's where I ran the lines. I'll get a better pic and post it for you.
