There are many threads on hydro lines .I made my own using the original type 3/8 bundy tube. Many members have said use Pirtek Does anyone know how much Pirtek charge to do 2 lines ? I have been asked to make some I keep putting it off as I am always busy on other projects.If Pirtek make them for a fair price I will let them know .I would expect they would charge $$$. There is no easy way to clean the hydro lines so when making them all you need is a small tube bender and any brake place can do the double flares, you do the flares before you bend the tube.

Local brake supplier was able to supply 3/8" tube a few weeks ago.

This is what p7676 posted recently in another thread.

I bought the 3/8 bundy tube from First Choice Automotive Parts, Part number T348 cost me $8.00 per m. They have 3 locations Cardiff NSW 49542744.You cut it to the size you need it comes in a large roll,allow an extra 60mm for double flares,4 double flares cost me $10.00 and any extra length can be taken up under the rear of the car. I bought a tube bender for $37.00 which does 3 different size tubes. The secret in bending is to buy an extra metre of tube then using this scrap tube you can calculate where to start the bends, The radius is the same on the old hydro lines .The tube is malleable like brake lines and if you bend the tube too far jut pull it back using your hands. You also need to keep checking the hydro line on the car .I used to screw the front of the line into the connection then check that allows you to twist the line if necessary. You develop a skill for bending them I found them hard to bend with a beer in one hand .Hot Rodders use this tube all the time. Hopes this helps you will need good skills to bend the lines as I said my lines fit better than the original ones. I am ex Experimental from BMC P7676 I did not want to install my old contaminated lines on the C.S NO leaks pumped up great.
