speedbump RP valves as close to the MC as practical. The rear proportioning valve where convenient but after the RP valve.

Vetteman61 OK, thanks. I'm pretty sure I have the adjustable valve. It's been a while since I ordered all my brake parts (minus the lines) so I can't really remember what's in there.

Is there any preference or reason to mount residual valves or the adjustable bais valve closer to the master cylinder or can it be anywhere?

Canzus 3/16ths will be fine. You will need to run an adjustable biasing valve for the rear brakes...

What size brake lines to use?

I'm building a 37 chevrolet 4 door as a daily driver for my wife. It will be our family car. I have 4 wheel disc brakes and I used the brake booster kit from Chassis Engineering, which uses the Corvette master cylinder.

The brakes on the rear are the stock 99 Ford Explorer brakes and the front are what came with the front IFS kit, which I believe are an older for brake style.

What size hard brake line should I use to plumb the brakes?
