Or in other words Crap! After running new brake lines under the front of the F100, the hardest most difficult line. I set up for the second most difficult line. It then I realize that my flaring tool is not up to the task. It's a piece of junk. I didn't know any better. I've never actually run lines before. The cheap tool is garbage. This got me thinking. It looks beautiful. The new line looks really good. It might even work. The flares that you don't see are crap. I thought they were OK but as I learn more about this. They are crap. It's better to realize this now, make corrections and go further. Part of doing this, building or repairing these old cars is doing it right. It's a hard pill to swallow sometimes. The reason I took this on is I wanted a quality job. There's just too many stories of shops getting this wrong. It's my job to critique myself. No one else is going too. As skill is gained, the ability to critique should gain as well. Some systems brakes, chassis, suspension, steering, fuel delivery and wiring demand perfection almost is not good enough. Many of you have Traditional Hot Rods built by 17 year olds almost always on a shoestring budget. Sometimes those kids did good work. Sometimes not. Stock should be the default. I'm not meaning a old car made safe as they say a new Volvo is. What I mean is basic good workmanship and design. Before big cams, fancy wheels and all the tricks, are the basics sound and are you willing to accept it your work was well.....not so good? It's better to catch stuff early than later.
