How many of you run your brake lines out near the front gear fitting and how many just exit out right in the center under the belly and which method is preferred??

Mine exit near the gear fittings. Originally the connections were up inside the skin. That was a pain for float changes. Bulkhead fitting through the sheet metal make removal and reinstallation of the brake lines much easier.

Because the SS braided lines were free(off a Navaho) I ran one line from the master to the bulkhead Elbow that I installed that exits at the top of the channel brace of the gear. also easy to R and R. It's tight with the gear hardware but I don't see a problem. They were installed after I covered the airplane. I picture would help. Get one at lunch.

Reason for asking is i am making some more changes to cargo pod design and this was one area i hoped to improve on but realize there are a bunch of cubs that have lines that dump straight down threw this area and would make it a bit difficult to fit a pod correctly, but feel the change would help streamline the pod.
