Yep makes a change I suppose at least my bus kept going and stopping was the problem but that's worse!. Just changing over to a dual circuit system at the moment but not quite as easy as expected, existing brake lines too short , heavy duty anti roll bar fouls master cylinder, brake rod seized etc but nearly there now  just need to bleed them.
cheers

Well done Owen certainly one of the most important upgrades to your braking system, I must of been lucky on my panel van they reached with a bit of a re-bend, the junkyard was a different matter I ended up having to run new lines anyway but that was for different reasons.
