After cleaning and painting many parts, seems like one nut has escaped.

Any one happen to have one laying around?

I have them. Or get a 14mm nyloc nut.

And the brake line bracket is bent. A big Cresent wrench works good to straighten them.

I have one that I can send you for free but I’m planning on using new. It shouldn’t be hard to find.

While I have little that is Orginal on the Car, my OCD at least wants things to match. If you could send one that would be awesome. Just let me know how much.

Of course you recognize your other excellent work?

Well went ahead and purchased all new ones. Went to put them on, got the 22mm socket. Son of a bitch (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) there is the nut inside the socket.

I hate being a dumb ass!

New nuts are nice to have. Don't sweat the small stuff.

No way to really discount that!

In this effort I have tried to account for all items and replace things that were suspect. But because I had the new ones I went ahead and changed them all! Now that's a nut!

Buying new parts is a sure fire way to find the missing ones. Works for me all the time.

My favorite part of the process is getting the new parts home and going out to the garage to put them away for installation later and not being able to put the parts where I wanted to because the part I was replacing is sitting in the spot I had planned on setting things down.

Yep - I often find the "other" set of identical new parts that I purchased and forgot about. This happens right about now, after a winter of collecting parts for the spring project season.
