The 45-degree hose ends allowed the braided lines to clear the floorboards. We made sure to leave some slack in the cooler lines to allow transmission-to-chassis flex without hose failure. The hoses were cable-tied together for security after exiting the framerail. On GM A-body cars, we found routing the lines through the frame rail is easiest, and does a good job of protecting them. Just make sure to keep the lines away from the front coil spring.
