    Looking at getting preformed brake lines (front to back) for my ‘67 Barracuda and I was looking at their ads...then I saw a lot of bad reviews. Anyone here have experience with them?

    My experience was not good. This one item in my disc conversion cost me 6 weeks. Wrong parts in the box, and asymmetrical flare was a nightmare.
    My recommendation would be to check Dr Diff, or make your own lines.

      My experience with getting a fuel line for my '67 Barracuda coupe.
      This was for a 3/8 St St line, but I wanted it to fit exactly as the original 5/16 line:
      1. Fine lines's had flat cross sections in the bends. They had no interest in the details so I just sent it back. No point in using 3/8 line if the tubing cross section is reduced.
      2. Classic Tube didn't fit right. I think there was a change between 67 and 68 or 69 in the routing and clip locations.
      3. Inline Tube was pretty much OK.

      A little more about that saga here
      Good/Bad Experiences when changing to 3/8" fuel line & sending unit?

        73 Duster. Brake lines and fuel lines fit great. Would use them again without hesitation.

        The 3/8” fuel line on my Challenger and my Duster came from inline. I also bought parking brake cables for my Challenger. Shipping was expensive and took a little longer than some places but all of the parts and lines were spot on. I’d use them again, I form most of my own brake lines but the long, larger diameter front to back lines (like the fuel lines) are nice to get preformed.

          Inline Tube, no problems.
          67 Barracuda, OE style, OE brakes
          Both fuel line and brake lines.

            Every line on my 66 was replaced and I bought them from Inline Tube, they all fit perfectly. Now I am picking up lines for the 68 and so far so good.

            I put inline tube brake lines on my ‘83 D150 and ‘68 Barracuda,
            The fit was fine, no issues with either of the installs.

            One thing that would come in handy is a tube straightener. The long front-to-back lines come folded in half or more for shipping, so you have some bends to straighten when they go on the car. It's not a big deal to do without a straightener, but if you're a little OCD you'll get a better looking result if you have one.

              Inline worked very good for me. Upsized to 3/8 fuel and standard brake lines. Used the standard type steel tubes and the only issue for me was tighten and re-tighten the brake fittings, sometimes a few times. They need that to seat correctly.

                The inline 3/8 fuel was a bit tough at the transition from rocker up the rear rail. Patience helps as it a full piece and the last rocker clip was tough to engage. Brake lines were pretty straight forward and fit Very well. Just getting them to seal was a little frustrating. I try not to over tighten them and seemed good torque and re-torque a time or more was the answer. KH disc and rear drum.

                  I bought and paid for all of my lines from Inline at the Nats last year. The lines were shipped immediately, but they forgot to put the rubber flex lines in the box. It took me 6 weeks, more than 1/2 dozen phone calls and emails sent with pictures of my handwritten invoice from the Nats clearly showing that I paid for them before they shipped them to me. And, I live in Michigan, about an hour from them.

                    I used Inline Tube for all of my lines (brakes and fuel) when I did my car, and I have no real complaint. One small issue (though not really a complaint) was the rear brake line was not exactly bent the way it needed to be for routing around the 7 1/4" rear end, but it only took a minor modification. Otherwise, everything went together just fine.

                    Pretty much perfect fit and they look nice in stainless. Put them on the Challenger recently on a resto. Almost done.

                      Stainless is the way to go! Spendy but I figure do it once and never again.

                      I havent had any problems with them installing their hoses right now. Dr Diff reccomends 1969 Camaro hoses if you're doing or have disc brakes on a 67-69 and it may be a better choice I dont really know though.
