    you need double flares on brake lines. hard to explain how to make them. the instructions in your flaring kit can show you better than I.

    why not buy a line close to the right length and bend it to fit. New nuts, lines and flares.

    Well the one that is striped is the one that goes to the rear hose all the whole line is good just that nut is getting striped out as for the ones on the axle you might have a real good idea there /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
