The armored front-to-rear brake line on my 94 Grand Cherokee failed. It is not available from the dealership. The local shops would fabricate this, but without the armor.
An on-line search revealed Fine Lines
would re-create the original, in either steel w/ stainless spiral wrap or stainless w/ stainless wrap.
A Dremel cutter wheel, at an angle, resulted in an acceptable shipping box length, for sending it to Fine Lines. I also painted one side, prior to the cut, to ensure proper orientation.
The replacement line arrived and I am very satisfied. I selected stainless line w/ stainless wrap. The Jeep uses metric fittings, so this is compatible with MB vehicles. It needed to have the shipping bend straightened and some other minor shipping smoothing.

The stainless brake line with stainless armor has been installed.
The brake line was close to the original, but it still required a coupla hours to change the shape to match the original.
Thank goodness I took LOTS of shots of the original. The images were captured at multiple orientations and angles. I would match my view of the new line to that on the image, then adjust the line 'till it matched.
Even with the tweaks required, I am still very satisfied with the service and the product.

The only problem was the rotational mis-registration between the front and back ends. My recommendation is to use the Dremel wheel to score a longitudal mark, along the brake line, prior to the cut, to ensure a better rotational match of the ends.
They also have replacement heat shield, that I did not utilize. I had them re-use the original.
