Convertible Top Hydraulic lines
It takes exactly 1 quart to fill the system with everything brand new.

Now promise not to roll your eyes as we go through this journey. Tongue   I had made up my mind that I never wanted to have another hydraulic leak that would ruin my new trunk or puddle under the rear seat again,  BUT.... I might have gotten a little carried away...........I'm just hoping that I didn't do more damage than good. The idea was to completely build a secondary barrier around the entire system.

Enclosing the pump was relatively easy.

Enclosing the cylinders was a tad harder

enclosing the tubing took multiple tries of buying different tubing. I tried rubber, but in order to  get it large enough to fit over the elbow where it attaches to the cylinders made it way too big to work. I eventually found some clear shrink tubing that was 3:1 shrink, so that 1-1/2" diameter turned into 1/2 diameter after  hitting it with a heat gun. The first tube looks like crap, but then I learned how to do the other three like a pro thumb

installed, filled , and operational.....let's hope I didn't waste alot of time only to cause more trouble than if I had done nothing whistling
