I'm about to do a rear drum to disc conversion on my del Sol. All I need are just the rear brake lines. Does anybody know how long they need to be?

Thanks in advance.

really? because nobody sells the kits huh? they need to be 6ft long on both sides, for maximum fluid capacity

6ft? Isn't that too long? I just need where it hooks up on the rear caliper that goes to that 10mm fitting
nah, 6ft is actually shorter than whats required. usually 8ft works best, as you can use a whole big bottle of brake fluid. no chance of boiling

^It can still boil, the fluid doesn't really move that much, just the back and forth motion of the pedal moves it but after you let go it is almost exactly where is was. The fluid at the caliper will still be extremely hot.
