    Brake lines

    Hello all, brake line time. Any suggestion on good well priced place to get the brake lines that run front to back of car etc.? I have started cleaning the ones up that came off my car, but are quite pitted, would rather spend a little and be safe .... Ideal Melbourne based. Had 1 price off 70ish per a line, I think there are about 5 on the car?

    I had good results buying some bundy tube, cutting to length and bending as desired and then taking down to a local brake place for a nice double flare at each end. Get the right people they wont even charge you. Go on a Saturday morning and take a box of beer just in case.

    Easy to do yourself. Just buy the bundy tube, flareing tool and a tube bender and a tube straightener.. if you take your time you can get a top class job.

    Hey Chris
    Pretty easy to do. Will just need the above mentioned tools. Will have far better satisfaction if you diy & pipe is cheap to practice on.
    Will need to make sure you get a double flare kit tho. Best of luck & love the website.

    Cheers Brendon, probably showing I'm doing a lot wrong, but learning along the way, no one has left a message saying what the are you doing

    Question, brake line straightener, will the any of the be ok? or do you need the more expensive options? Was going to get the pliers to fix some the existing lines that I can probably reuse...
