How to dimple brake rotors
I save money and buy OEM brake rotors, as opposed to cross-drilled or slotted rotors. For a race car application, you want some kind of air expansion/passage ways so any gasses that get built up between the pad and rotor can vent away. I use a 1/2" ball-end end-mill to make little dimples about 1mm deep. Here's a PDF of my template: http://www.ephotomotion.com/rennlist pics/944 brake rotor template front.pdf

Brake Tube Flaring & Bending
First half is bending. Flaring starts about 20min in. ***NOTE: The notches in the mandrel bar of the CPP tool are the depth gauge for the tubing preset. Thank you to the those that have pointed that out!! I sincerely appreciate you educating me!!!! :) Use this info at your own risk. Brake problems can be deadly. If you can't do you own work correctly, seek a professional. This is how I do it and it's just just for demonstration purposes and not intended to instruct. In the vid, I say they're aluminum lines, but they are steel lines. I was helping a buddy with his A100 van and I had the tools handy. Thought I'd throw together some info that might help the less experienced see that brake line work isn't rocket science.....but it does have to be done right. There's lots of info on the web on how to do this so do your homework. The vid includes flares made with a common, very cheap flaring tool and with a CPP kit. The CPP flaring tool is well worth the money if you do brake lines more than once. **update 8/11/13** Looks like the price is now $70, about half what I paid. www.classicperform.com Part #CPDFT-D Like us on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/bluehandsvideo Check out our products! http://www.bluehandsinc.com Behind-the-scenes look at what we do! http://www.bluehandsvideo.com
