Yep, I was told I was getting it 1/2 price lol.
Here ya go! [FOR SALE] - Stainless steel 8 3/4 brake line kit 67-69 A-body
We have used this stuff for at least 5 or 6 years with no issue. The way I see it, if any road debris gets to any brake line it's got a good chance of harming the line.
I wouldn't fool with junkyard brake tubing unless you live in SoCal or Phoenix. You need a quality double-flaring tool as shown. I have made double-flares OK on the newer "metric" brake tubing (from junkyard car in CA), so it must be close enough to the 1/8" tubing. I used it for its flexible stainless wire-braid sections at the master cylinder. You can actually make bubble-flares with a double-flaring tool, as I did to use a later MC on my Mopars. You just use the flat-side of the bar to make the single flare (see youtubes). You can buy a special bubble-flare tool, but expensive. The Cu-Ni tubing sounds great, but I have never had much trouble flaring steel tubing, if you keep the clamping bar very tight so the tube can't slip (use a wrench, not just the thumb screw). Stainless tubing may be harder, though I recall that is what the metric tubing I used was. As an aside, I have read that the spiral steel wrap over the brake tubing was so the workers could hand-bend the tubing tightly around the frame rails without kinking (using leather gloves). Others say it was protection from rock strikes. Perhaps it was for both.
You did as a nice job on that. It's not too hard at all is it? Just try telling people that on here who've never done it. lol
No it wasn't to hard at all, getting the hang of using the flare, triple checking the proper length to bend and 2 broken rental flare tools were the hardest part. I bought a 25 dollar flare tool at autozone and the thing worked like a charm, made great flares and I ended up redoing all of the flares with it. Oh also, remember to put the fittings on is very important before making the flare... ask me how I know... ooh and don't let the fittings fall down the line then add a bend to the line... thats a pain in the ass too. Overall it only took me maybe 2 days working about 2-3hrs a day...
Boy, did i get hosed! I bought two 20 INCH lengths of 1/4" nicopp, and four brakeline to 1/8pipe fittings, for a linelock. When i was told "that'll be $45, " i almost fell over dead. I guess i should have shopped around, but i didn't have time, fall fling was just around the corner. (But that is another sad tale).
I bought a roll kit from inline. It came with the fittings and everything was enough to redo my entire car for like 36 bucks. I bent and flared them myself turned out pretty nice.
