brake lines

I'm starting from scratch and have never done any.... What's the line of choice? Stainless, NiCopp? I was thinking NiCopp b/c it's easier to bend and still resistant to rusting. Any thoughts?

Re: brake lines

I use NiCopp. Stainless is a PITA to work with imho especially for a novice. The juice isn’t worth the squeeze....

Re: brake lines

I have used SS from in line tube on multiple vehicles over the years and never a problem or a leak. Easy to work with, pre bent like Oem. JMO.

Re: brake lines

NiCopp? Is that the same as CuproNickle? Used on Submarines. We call it Unobtainium.
