Damn Brakes

So i was do for this to happen eventually. My right front brake line has been worn down by my old tires and i neglected to replace it because i didn't want to bleed my whole system anytime in the last three weeks so me and 3.0backfire are driving up to get some food and as soon as i parked it the brake pedal went to the floor and brake fluid shot out everywhere. Yah so we walked to my friends house around the corner and he drove us back to my house to get a c clamp so i could clamp off the brake line and get it home.

Well now its at home and is waiting for the system to be flushed, I already got the new brake hose on and i got a new wheel cylinder to go in the back right drum because its been leaking for awhile and i thought what the heck i should just get that out of the way. So tomorrow we are flushing the whole system and doing some "preventative" maintenance.

I just count my cards lucky it decided to burst when i had come to a complete stop!
