I will be installing my dual brake piping soon and was wondering what you guys did when you ran two pipes across the lower brace on the front clip. The original has two holes for the clips to install one pipe for drum brakes. Since I will be installing Disc/Drum brakes I will need an additional pipe. A photo would be very nice.

disc brakes

I only have one line running across the front cross member for the front calipers. and separate line off the proportioning valve to the rear drums. I power brakes on my 63. it was of the first kits offered from CCP back in the day.

I have already bought brake lines which will run along the passenger side of the car so I am going to need additional clips to hold the line that crosses over like the original Drum brake line did. My car will be a 4-speed so it looks like running the brake line down the drivers side might interfere with the Z-bar and bracket.

I guess I could drill new holes slightly offset so the piping will run adjacent to each other. Anybody do it that way?

The Right Stuff offers some clips that hold two brake lines parallel that may work. You'll have to check size to see if it works with your lines.
