Wow, I wonder if they would do that for me here in Queens. Worth asking, thanks for the heads up. Did they flare the ends for you too?

4. Make a loop and twist on a key ring.
I like that, simple but effective.

Ya, I'm a genius, but don't tell anybody I'm too crazy for anyone to believe it.

You can bend brake lines your self . I have done it with ease .


Remove the old piece, keep it in its original shape ( as close as you can ) . Measure the length of the tube, following the curves , to get the correct length . Take the original piece or at least the end fittings and the measurement to your favorite parts store . They should have a decent selection of straight tubing with finished ends . Obviously , get the one that comes the closest to your required length, and has the correct size fittings.
If it's a little short , find places in the routing of the line to cut corners, and if it's a little long , find places to use up a little extra length.
Use the original piece as a template . Bend by hand along the original . Keep in mind where you need to cut corners or use up extra length .

Remember : baby steps when making a bend . Make a bend a little at a time to avoid kinking the tube . Start at one end of the bend and work your way through it . Don't try to make the full bend in one try .

Thanks for the help. Manhattan Jeep Parts was able to get me a prebent replacement line by tomorrow so I'm going that route.
