front brake flex lines

Anybody have a good pic of how to run the flex lines to a disk front end?

I'm ready to install my "through frame" fittings but not sure where to place them. It looks like the banjo bolt on the caliper points towards the front of the vehicle. I just can't visualize the flex line running up around the spring and then over to the front of the frame but if the banjo points forward the line would have to make a nasty u turn to go back behing the suspension.

I installed 90 degree fittings on my calipers that angled the flex line to the rear in the direction of the bulkhead fitting. All my brake fittings are AN fittings. If your lines are banjo bolt type, that limits what you can do with them.

Did you not use a banjo and just used the 90 fitting?

I think I seen a fitting like that somewhere, I believe the "through Frame fittings are AN also. -3 I believe.

No Banjo fittings used at all. My calipers are Willwood and the fitting is 1/8" NPT. I used a 90 degree 1/8" NPT to #3 AN fitting at each caliper.
