    Are you talking about the metal lines or the rubber ones? The metal lines hold up pretty well and the rubber ones are easily replaced with readily available hose from Kragen or Autozone.

    I was talking about the metal lines. If you can just buy sections for replacement, what size are they??

    If you're going to replace the metal lines, I'd replace the whole thing. Make it one-piece like the factory did, less chance for leaks. You can take the old ones out to use as a pattern for the new ones. A simple tubing bender will make the curves and you'll need to to put the hose "bulge" on the ends, if they don't come with them.

    Check out the following url:

    They have a lot of good info regarding the 90/10 brake line material. Can also be used for making fuel lines as well...

    They are expensive but Classic tube sells the complete set of 3 for about $300 pre bent in stainless. I am only doing this car once and the budget went long ago. HTH, Richard.
