    the brake lines are simple to make, double flaring kit are inexpensive and so is small tubing cutter, i make lines all the time here, theres little tricks here and there like if you need to reuse a threaded fitting because it is an odd size but if you cant get the fitting off the old tubing then take a drill bit same size as the line, IE. 3/16" or 1/4" and drill the old tubing out of the fitting, this also cleans them up so fitting will turn good on the new line. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif tubing bender is inexpensive too, and most of the time you dont relaly need one, usually i bend lines over large screwdriver handles or hammer handles, etc. unless need to be real tight bend,.

    goodluck

    I got an 86 frame out here, I know it's got the fuel lines on it, I'll look for the brake lines too.Not sure what it would package up in, but if interested let me know.
