ummm, either go to a junk yard, or bend them yourself. They make cheap tools for this and you can buy long lengths of ss brake line and do it yourself. A flare tool is also used, but it seems like it might be over your head a bit. Junkyard is your best bet.

You can probably order them from www.inlinetube.com. Also try www.classictube.com.

Thanks for the help guys. I was trying to find pre-bent to save time but I went out and bought the line and I am just going to bend it myself on a weekend when I have off. Thanks again for the help.

I have tube bending springs that work well on aluminum & copper. The few times I attempted S.S. did not go that smoothly as the tensile strength is quite different. The way I was able to deal w/ that was to fill the tubing w/ sand before attempting the bend to prevent collapse during the bending process. Take your time. Multiple flexing's works better than "going for it!". You are simultaneously stretching & compressing the metal. A little torch preheating wouldn't hurt.

I finally got the old brake lines off of my truck and started mocking up the new lines. The bending is going slowly but surely. I'll try to post pics when I get it finished but it is looking pretty good so far. Thanks for all of the help.
