    As soon as all parts are painted, I begin to put all parts back on. There are a lot of pieces that need to be customized or bought new.

    It's not possible for me, to work so many hours a week on the volvo. so it will take some time before first drive, hope in spring.

    Why not, is strong enough and will not rust, and super easy to work with.

    They make a copper nickel alloy brake line which is ok to use but I would hesitate to use hardware store copper tubing.

    If the copper pipes (is approved for brakes) are firmly fixed, they can not move and break. We have big problems with rust here in Denmark and copper pipes do not rust easily. The car has been approved by an engineer, where he has made a pressure test of the brake system. and vehicle inspection, also make a test before it may even run on public roads.

    Stainless steel pipes are very nice and super strong. are maybe a little overkill for me

    Merry Christmas

    Awesome truck. Love this build. I think it's great that a guy in Denmark and a guy in Australia can help each other thanks to the internet!
