    Thanks. He makes a lot of good points in the video. I bought a wrench for the bleeder but I didn't think to get one for the nuts holding the lines. Guess I'd better B 4 I round them off. Thanks again.

    Go to sears and get a full set of quality wrenches (or Mac or snap on). They look like boxed end with a small section cut out for the brake line. And let the penetrating oil soak for a day or two. If you wreck those fittings you'll need a flaring kit and new fittings, which is a whole new ball of wax.

    Sometimes it's unavoidable no matter how much care is taken, but it's not always. I will tell you that knowing how to properly flare brake line has saved me a lot of money and hassle.

    I did rotors and pads today. Everything was rusted together which made it a bigger job then I thought it would be - bottom line - I did not have enough time to do the SS lines - hopefully soon.

    I'm sorry to hear that. When everything is torn apart is one of the most opportune times to switch out the lines.

    I'm sorry to hear that your install didn't go as planed. I hope all goes well next time you attempt to install the lines.

    There's not much else that can be said. Why repeat what you just said?
