I have the kit but found that the pipe running across the rear of the subframe is a little tight for my liking. I have a flaring tool and would like to make my own up. Where would be the best place to buy pipes and fittings?

 

Thanks

 

Jason

Cut the pipe you bought for the fittings

I'd like to build up some spares as I will be making pipes for my other cars as well.

I bough my stuff off eBay found to be the cheapest, copper brake pipe probably all comes from the same manufacturer.

Get copper/nickel (copronickel) not plain copper.
