extending brake lines on Master Cylinder

I am adding a booster to my manual brakes and the lines from the actuator (mounted on frame) to the master will be short by about 6". Are there any options to extend the lines I have? There are no coils to unwind on my current lines. Any other suggestions or should I look for new or used lines..
Thanks

I'm assuming by 'actuator' you are referring to the proportioning valve? The power brakes use different length lines because they master cylinder is much farther away from the firewall. You can buy new prebent lines (not sure if avail alone or only in complete kits) or go pick up some straight lines from the parts store and bend some up yourself.

The parts stores sell lines in different lengths with fittings already on them. I take the old one with me to match the ends.
