Hagerty's Kyle Smith walks you through how to properly bend brake or fuel lines in the first video, and in the second video, how to properly create an SAE/double/inverted flare on your brake and fuel lines for your classic car.

  • Very limited experience with duplicating lines, and what little I have was with my old domestic car.  Might be a silly question but are all the lines and fittings SAE or does one have to buy separate tooling for metric on imports?

That's a good question!  Apparently there are SAE and Metric nuts but the lines themselves are probably universal. 


The kit I have has both metric and SAE fittings, although since I no longer live in the rust belt will probably have the newer cars traded off before they will EVER need brake lines so the metric fittings have just gathered dust.
