I would only use Fine Lines, their stuff is the only ones that fit properly, In Line sucks!!  Their cheaper price on eBay is just a reflection on their quality.....   They are a nightmare to deal with on problems too.  I am with many other on the Stainless Lines too, they are not worth the extra cost and you will be chasing leaks for a while......

Pre-bent brake lines are great when the engine bay is empty. Not so much when it is not. Copper nickel works great and is easy to flare with the right tool.

Easy to flare with any double-flare tool that works even decent with steel. It's soft - until you work-harden it. 
Point is moot, though - he's bought his choice.

Copper Nickel lines work best for me. Easy to bend and the correct flaring tools are priced okay. Stainless Steel takes a lot of effort to get a good seal and are very hard to work with without the right tools, which are expensive.

Could someone post the link to the "Fine Line" you're referring to?  I searched and found 3 sites claiming to be "Fine Lines."  One was "sstube" which has both SS and steel but are they Fine Lines, one was "finelinetubeproducts" but they don't list anything before 1973 (or do I have to call?), and one was "performanceonline" which also claims to have fine lines.
Thanks in advance.
