I need to document this when I tackle mine.

EDIT: Don't worry, saw your other post on the subject.

I don't understand why everyone is saying parts are difficult for the versailles rears... I have been searching in a last ditch effort to determine if I am going to install my versailles rear in my 67 based on alot of folks comments about not doing so. Calipers can be ordered from numerous sites, $45. Rotors are $25, easily ordered. It's a 9" unit, has easier to work on disk brakes instead of drums.. seem's like it's the right way to go vs. a stock drum unit.

Ok, go find some of the soft lines that bolt to the caliper and connect to the hard lines. In stock, not just an ad for them.
FWIW, I wound up using Cobra front lines that I had to drill out and install a roll pin to keep them from rotating.
Someone else here posted a different line that is easier to make work.

There is also an Ebay store, it might be the same name as that, that has braided stainless brake lines for the Versailles and Granada stuff.

Dagnabbit! Those weren't on ebay last year when I had to make mine! Everyone was out of stock. I did find a set of braided hoses, but they were something like $125
