    1. A few seconds after he flares it you can see the nut on down the line if you look carefully. Brass colour…. he never took the nut off. Cut a bit of the pipe and flared it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Sometimes folks have All Go, and No Woah. Last summer we replaced the entire brake system on my 1949 Chevy, just as y’all did. Good job Hagerty. ๐Ÿ‘

  2. Your YouTube channel is starting to be at the top of my favourite list guys .. keep up the amazing work ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ

  3. “If you haven’t befriended your local businesses, you’re a fool…” Truer words were never spoken. If you get in a jam, and need help ~now~, this is how you do it. Of course, you have to work at this: you deal with them fairly all the time, not just when you are against the wall.

    1. Absolutely. I’ve developed friendships with my favorite mechanic and the local machinist. They’ve proven valuable time and time again. Plus, when you’re friends, sometimes a case of beer is all the payment that’s needed.

  4. your 100% correct when I worked on cars on the weekends me and the guys were very friendly with our local machine shop guys
    and we benefited from that a lot especially working so many jobs on a weekend only and needing the machined parts back in a day. Those guys are long gone and I don’t do any car restorations anymore. But those were the days. Nothing like smelling like part cleaning fluid and having dirty finger nails. Enjoy! thanks for the video.

    One thing that nobody ever does and it helps , is to blow the fluid out of the bleeder with air or suck it out with a twisted paper towel before putting the cap on it.
    That and a little lube of some sort on the bleeder threads and you have a way better chance of getting them loose down the road.

  6. Well you are a super star celebrity to us watching for sure….or at least the most organized mechanic on youtube.

  7. Gotta admit, I love the Teflon tape trick – the race car gets its brakes bled fairly often, that should make life a bit more effective.
    (Also love the โ€œnon-dudeโ€ mentality in these videos.)

  8. youโ€™re Killing It, Davin & Pals. we like to watch these for the Pro Building, Production Value, Comedy & Super Talent shown. please keep it up. The Numbers Donโ€™t Lie…these are Successful Uploads. Thank You, RLR Team!

  9. Great series. Seems like I went through all of this about 10-11 years ago on a customer’s Old Navy clothing store ’50 Chevy truck, acquired for free when the chain was done with them. They looked nice, but they were stripped shells with sectioned frames to get them through the doors in two halves, and they needed absolutely *everything* to get back on the road. Fun project, though.

  10. Met Davin at SEMA 2019. Such a good guy. I told him how much I enjoyed his work – he seemed surprised and a bit bashful about his notoriety. I do enjoy watching these videos.
