    I moved my ABS to pretty much the same spot, actually where the battery used to be, only comment my engineer made was he “prefers” to keep it as close as possible to the same height it was before, not totally sure why.  Totally agree with running things past the engineer first, at least then when its done he has no surprises, and you don’t have to redo something. Also agree with IJ, if your doing brakes in hard lines there’s no issues.  Nice progress buddy, looking good.

    Happy to have it here buddy.  That’s the prob with fb, everyone and anyone can have an opinion and is an armchair expert. Actually theres a couple of other forums like that too  ;-) always more than one way to achieve what ya want, there is categorically no “right”way.
