Brake hose routing Q

Where do I route the brake hose for the right front wheel from my friewall mounted m/c? The car is a '34 Ford with M II susp.

1. One pipe for both front wheels down to the left frame rail, splitting the hose where it meets the hose from the left front wheel and route the hose to the right front wheel over the front crossmember.

2. Splitting the front brake hose close to the m/c, route the right front hose across the firewall, down to the right frame rail and forward?

Option 1 is the way I always do it. On MII or straight axle setups.

Option 1 is the way "The Roadster Shop" did the brake lines on my 34 frame.

Also consider where to terminate the steel line and begin the hose to the wheel caliper. Length of hose and how it moves stop to stop so the hose don't get tight and don't rub nothin'.
