    I just used my roll cage to bend my brake lines. Was only using standard bundy tube but worked fine and easier to get the exact bends where I wanted them then using a bending tool. Just pull the tube around the bars and bends perfect. Can even do full 180's.

      I managed OK with the cheapest bender and flaring tool money could buy from eBay (was black with red handles), hard line should be easy to find, just google or ring around.

      EDIT: similar to

      and

      I think the flare tool was cheaper than that worth getting a better one as it took a fair bit of fucking around to get workable flares. Was good for putting bards on fuel line too though.

            I have a dual action flarer and bending tool. Also ABS chains sell the ferrules and bundy.

                Any brake shop should be able to sell you a length of 6 metre bundy tube.

                I just bought a roll off these guys -> https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/x-TRAILE...D/251866647234

                Flaring tools aren't worth buying unless you buy the good ones for around $350, have used this model and they make it so easy -> https://www.eastwood.com/professiona...ring-tool.html Alternative is just bend the lines and take them to a brake shop to flare.

                For the 90 bends, use a glass for non tight bends, for everything else, buy one of these -> https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Mini-Tub...1/292144807549

                  this looks good for the price, no experience with this type but it looks harder to make than the one I linked above so i guess it will work better. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Genuine-...QAAOSwB9JZciRz

                    Pro tip
                    Find a brand of bundy called Reliance... its distributed by Brake Parts Aust in QLD
                    Nice stuff... easy to flare and bend... won't even need a bender
                    And buy a decent flare tool... like the Eastwood vice mounted one... if your going to do flares in the future

                    If your doing a few quick jobs... that $52 one will do

                      I recently got that cheapo one posted above. Works great for the price, much quicker to use than my more expensive universal pipe flaring kit.

                        Those ebay black red specials suck balls... ok for 1 or 2 occasional uses but not overly great ..

                        ie thread on the screw thing galled up pretty much straight away drilled and tapped it out machined a larger bolt to size and the cone on the end will not stop spinning when doing the second part of the flare.

                        The good part is very small length needed to do the flare.

                        Ive got a real old school meco one also that is well worn but does the job


                        Ive got a bender from repco is like a set of pliers that wraps the pipe into a die.

                          Ive got a wurth turret flaring tool, but im planning to buy one of these too.

                          Would making on-car changes way easier. $40 is dumb cheap..

                            Damn, that is pretty good. Especially given the price.

                              Same price at Supercheap too. So if member/trade you get it for less.

                              We had a guy come in to do a cut and shut on an abraded brake hard line
                              and when he left he went straight next door to Supercheap and bought one.

                              Its a direct copy of the Eastwood one.

                              edit. or is it the Toledo one, one of them anyway
