The lines that goes to the rear brakes worked but, they were a big hassle to make fit. The front lines must have been for a different car ( not even close ) I should have just bought a roll of line and did it myself like I'm going to do now. I could have saved 150 bucks! although 150 bucks is not what it use to be.

Soft copper tubing is not intended to be used with 1,000psi pressure.

It is for water supply uses which will seldom excede 200 psi.

It will work for a time, then it will fail by splitting and cause a sudden loss of pressure to the brake caliper.

Check your "strength of materials" handbook and or get a specific product recommendation from the manufacturer listed on the tubing that you bought.

This can be a lethal mistake and a case where a little knowledge can be dangerous.
