Default Hard brake lines

Hey gang. On my 89 base project, I have discovered that the brake lines have rotted near the ABS pump and up front under the battery area. I do not have the tools to bend brake lines nor the tools to flare them properly. The car is bound to my garage and I do not want to take it anywhere to have the lines made. Is there any resource for buying all of the lines as a package so I can just replace them all?

Autozone sells NiCopp in bulk so get that and find the ends and you can bend it WITHOUT tools. Pay the deposit on their flaring tool and be happy.

Just buy preflared lines with the correct fittings close to the length you need. They come in various lengths. Buy a tubing bender (very inexpensive) and copy the factory bends. Simple as pie.
