I have scoured the earth -well, Canada anyways- and cannot find stainless preflared brake lines anywhere -- so, I must go with normal steel ones :(

Then I thought - "why don't I paint them after bending ?". I can't see this as being a bad thing, as I imagine it will slow down or eliminate corrosion. Reccomendations on what to paint them with ?

Any thoughts on a color ? My frame and 8.8 rear are black. Engine will be ford blue (block) with black/silver "Cobra" valve covers and air cleaner. Everything else on the engine natural aluminum.

You shouldn't need to touch them as most lines are galvanized anyway. Unless you plan on making a winter, daily driver out of it, they should last nearly forever. I know I ran all of my lines back in '99, and they still look like the day they were installed!

Why don`t you make your own using seamless stainless and AN fittings? Pure Choice sells a kit or you can buy the fittings at most speed shops and the tubing at a metal shop. I made my own and its not such a huge task. Roger

I guess that's a good point Brian. Plus, if they're galvanized from the factory then they'd probably need special prepping before paint too :(

Maybe I'll just run them galvanized, then.

There are several places where you ship your bent lines to them and they will duplicate your lines in stainless. Ballpark price around $300
