Does anyone know if the front brake pipes the hard line ones from abs block and master cyl are still availble, or if the exige ones listed on deroure are the same ?
Mine are a bit bent from where the radiator got pushed back
Cheers

Depending on how bent they are it may not be an issue. Bear in mind they are formed straight and deliberately designed to be bent to make complex shapes.

 

It depends on the radius of bend really and some common sense.

Yeah a couple have started to go a bit flat on the bend and a couple are out of shape which could be bent back but not straight . Probably a bit fussy but if they are not lots of money I thought I would replace them

The Lotus Europa shares many of the vx220 brake pipes, any A116 or B116 or C116 part numbers are normally vx220 items

Cheers , didn't want to resort to copper pipe as I find it never looks great either with straight runs or tight curves

Someone on the forum sells lines, look in the parts for sale or group buys
