Thanks for translating.  Cumulatively that adds up to a fair amount of change.  It would be fascinating to compare driving and handling of 1976 and 1978 cars when new.  Thanks again Daniel, cheers,

I missed the cut-off for the B5 line upgrade with my car.  Wonder how much of a difference it really makes.

Success!

Made a new line from an old brake line.  Straightened it out and inserted a 10 gauge bare copper wire inside of it and then bent to fit. Car is now sitting pretty much level.  A big relief to finally get this last mechanical item taken care of.  Now I can delve into body work and move towards painting.
