    Straight preflared sections are a time saver if you get a length that you can make work. Or just bend your own. Cooper Nickle brake line is worth the extra cost. Bends and flares sooooo much easier and won't rust. That green coated line sold at O'Reilly's is a bitch to get a good flare on.

      That's what I've done in the past, use pre-flared straight pieces, bend them up. If one piece is a bit to long, make a loop, or a few S shapes. haha I have a flare tool now though.

        That style flaring tool is a godsend. When I used it the first time I was left scratching my head wondering why they even make the other shitty ones. Grab a 3/16 for brakes and a 3/8 for fuel lines and drop your shitty one in the bottom of a drawer for the 1 in a million chance you might need to use one of the other 8 sizes it has

          MasterCool set I bought when they were all the rage.
