I'm enjoying your fascinating project video's.

Just a little advice with reference to your brake lines.
I would fix the junctions between the flexi lines and the hard lines through a tab welded to a chassis rail. This is to stop the transmission of movement from the flexi's to the hard lines that will fracture if not supported.
Maybe you already have this planned?

Example below....
