Mine ran straight out of the top of my cup through the old shock hole. My valves are mounted in the same place, and I haven't had any problem with this setup, so good luck!

If they're already mounted on the wheel well, just make a new whole behind the shock tower hole, and run the line up from there. Use an elbow fitting from the output of the tee to go to the bag.

Use a sharp box cutter to make a straight cut, or go to home depot and pick up an airline cutter. I know they sell 'em, just don't know where in the store. ART's website has a pic of one.

Pipe dope only goes on NPT threads, not compression threads, so you are doing it right. Also, on compression fittings, the cut does not have to be perfectly straight. Just as close as you can get it.
