Hi all!

I was wondering if anyone has any detailed photos on how the vacuum lines harness for the headlights are routed in the engine compartment? My car is a 70 Superbird 440 4BBL.

Also, on the fuel line and brake line that runs front to rear, I bought a clip kit for each that came with the spring clips and a couple of bolt on clips. Anyone know where the bolt on clips go for the fuel and brake lines?

I did not disassemble my car so I do not have disassembly photos.

Thanks in advance!
 
Bolt on clips go on the outside of the rear frame rails in the wheel well and one on the shock crossmember.

Vacuum lines. Mine are a bit short so they're not quite right. Originally just thrown up on the top of the inner fender

Very helpful, thank you!
Do you know where these clips with the teeth would go? There was one in the fuel line clip kit and one in the brake line clip kit. See the pic #3. They look like they might get imbedded into seam sealer or something.

Also, the brake line kit had two of the bolt on clips. I installed one on the outside of the left frame rail at the rear. Is the second one needed and where would it go? The 1st and 2nd pic is of those clips.

Thank you!
