Can someone tell what this bracket is for?

The bracket is located on the left front framerail, right behind the upper control arm. It's main purpose is to hold the hard brake line to rubber brake line going to the left front brake. I'm wondering about the part that rises up on a slight angle, and has a small hole drilled. Whoever thought of taking pics before disassembly is a genius.

thanks. started my car about 5-6 years ago, and walked away for quite a while.


Looks like some serious upgrades there. More pictures?
had a ton of pics on here using that photo bucket site? that's long gone. i guess the pics are too. had a progress thread going, but don't remember where it is. i'll take some pics tomorrow of the major mods.

GMPP LS3 w/ the hot cam, Tremec Magnum, .064 OD, Ford 9" w/ 3:73 gears, Custom Works Performance SPC upper and lower control arms w/ coilover shocks in the front, Custom Works C5 front disc brake conversion, Custom Works rear disc brake conversion, Custom Works subframe connectors, Custom Works LS radiator & close ratio steering box & Vintage Air front runner accessory drive. Think that's all the big ticket items.

Other than the manual, sounds like the same direction I'm heading when parts get back in stock.
Looks like a really nice build.

funny story. buddy asked if i wanted to ride out to Outlaw Performance, and take the shop tour. if you're into street rods, i'm sure you've heard of Outlaw. they don't advertise cause they don't have to. that's why you never see any magazine articles touting them. they were told it's because they don't spend any advertising dollars.

anyway, after the tour, i got hooked and bought a '34 chevy coupe, cause i thought the coupe looked more hot roddy than the sedan. bought a ZZ383, had a 700R4 prepped, got a 3:73 center for the 9" housing, Budnik 17 & 18" wheels custom sized, vintage air setup, honda accord motorized seats, had the frontend fitted, cause i got tired of laying the grill shell every different angle and couldn't decide which was correct. anyway, about this time, my son in law mentions he saw a '70 camaro for sale on ebay. i had ordered a '72 back then,, no job, no idea how i was going to pay for it, but they went on strike and the order was cancelled. well, the light bulb comes on, and i think " hey i can buy a done early 70's camaro to ride around in while i'm building the '34. well after looking at all the junk locally, ( Philly) i took a ride down to Alabama 1 night and looked at an LS early 70's. they wanted 32K, i didn't want to spend that much and came home. pretty much drove straight down and back. well, the juices are flowing and i end up w/ this '70 out of Cali. supposed to be rust free, nothing wrong w/ it. shipped it here via Intercity Lines, beautiful truck, and the first thin i notice is the trans leaking. have a 4 post lift, so i change the filter, new gasket. nope. turns out the bolts that hold the pump in threads are stripped. i pull the trans and think, this car needs a 5 or 6 speed. next i think, i'm this far, might as well pull the engine, go through it and see if it needs anything. it's supposed to be a 383. well, you know where this is going, get it out and think, you know what would look good in that engine bay, a nice new corvette LS3. and then of course that old 10" rear isn't going to hold up, so we HAVE to have a ford 9". and down the rabbit hole i go.

meanwhile, the '34 just sits there waiting it's turn. at this point, i'm probably going to sell it, but i'm told trying to sell a car that doesn't run will probably be impossible unless i basically give it away.

so here are both, the camaro when it was still running and new to me, and the '34 all dressed in black gelcoat

First off, let me admit to not being able to figure out how to PM on this forum. Nice looking Camaro w/somewhat familiar story. If all this was easy everybody would do it. You're right IMHO about having to take a bath on 34 in present condition, but maybe not. Take a look at Street Machinery Sales & Service Sunday swap-a-Rama on facebook. A good honest & informative listing there might bring surprising results and costs nothing but your time. The 34 attached and in my avatar has been an ongoing project for me since December 95. It has been coast to coast and usually my "Daily". Real factory steel and wood "Master", ZZ4/TH350, 10 bolt. If you would like additional correspondence, either explain what I am missing for PM or email [email protected]

THANX, Roger

When I was younger I could tear something apart leave it set for months and then just put it all back together. No Pic's. No way I could do that now. Cell phone camera is an awesome tool.
