Question for anyone who's fitted Goodridge brake hoses?

Currently fitting these front & back, the hoses all look good but there are 2 x copper washers in the kit. Any ideas where the copper washers fit?

Should of got exact ones from me!!

So many people find with GOODRIDGE the fit on the body end needs some fettling to fit and that's a common fault across all of there range.

The small copper washers go on the fitting in to the caliper

Poor design...

The hoses for the GTV are poorly designed - being just a braided 'copy' of the original style.

However, they seem to need an included angle (45 or 90) at the caliper end, to allow a better 'run' preventing excess strain on the hose and braiding at the join.

Autolusso are now selling high-quality hoses modified to this design.
