Biggest beast of a job on a cc concept

Hey I found the suckiest job on the coach to date. I was checking air lines with my little squirting bottle and found I had a leak on the 5/8 hose from the firewall to the air dryer. After a thrilling 2 hours trying to remove the old one with rusty fittings I finally cut it and pulled it out. The new one is a ^%$&^$# the get snaked through the frame since it is all the way up there and you need special detachable joints and no sense of Claustrophobia to wiggle up there. It would help to be 120 lbs which I am not.
Yes the coach is blocked before you ask but it's a crappy job.
There are also many bands and zip ties to find and remove. Oh and wear clothes you can throw away cause your gonna get greasy all over.

Of course the servicing option is, to lift the coach body off the frame , so you have the same access as the original installer.
