Hey everyone had my new to me GTR delivered Monday, long story short the driver who delivered my car had trouble with the shackle holding the right front tire. He rocked the car back in the trailer and something snapped. No brake pedal...so took the wheel off tonight to find the brake line broken on the caliper itself. Im assuming I can go to autozone and get some brake line, and bender and flare tool, use the old ends and just make a new line? I was going to take it to a shop but I figure I can do it myself, I did brakes while I was in college, just never on an actual caliper. Correct me if Im wrong, thanks!

Ask Forged Performance,AMS or Cicio for a brake line fix.
One of them will have a solution.

Call or contact the above for brake line fixes.
The R35 really needs better brake lines from the factory anyway.
You'll be glad you upgraded them.
No more spongy braking after 15-20 minutes on circuit track.
The shipping company should pay for the damage IMHO.

That's the crossover tube that's damaged.  You could try to fabricate a new one yourself.  Of you could contact the folks at Classic Tube and they can make replacement(s) for you.  If they don't already have a template for the GTR front caliper crossover, you can send them one of yours and they can copy it. I would send the good tube from the opposite caliper and have them make two new ones for you.

 

These guys have done great work for my customers on many OEM Brembo calipers.

update:  fixed it myself, just got some 3/16 brake line from the auto store.  I re-used the old ends to make sure the seal was good inside the caliper.  it was tough to bend the line close to the calipers since i only had a large radius bending tool, so ill probably get another line tool i found online that can make tight bends, and re-do it in the spring, but for now, all is well.
