buy a double flare kit practice a while till you cet it right then buy a universal line kit and all the fittings your going to need and make them yourself. you'll have less than $40.00 in it and if you take your time have a great setup.

Buy a good quality tubing bender at the same time, not the spring type.

Cool

If you have to make 3/16" double flares, get a good flaring tool kit, like a Weatherhead or Ridgid #345. I bought a Lisle kit, figuring that although Lisle isn't Snap-On, it's always functional. Not in this case: every 3/16" flare came out way off-centre and useless. A hydraulic shop loaned me a Ridgid 345 tool, and with the die from the Lisle kit I got a decent double flare on my first try.

Home Depot has the Ridgid 345 tool, but not the double flaring dies.

if you can't buy line locally, try JC Whitney they have line kits. i have used them the line flares very well i'm sure it is a little softer than hard straight line. but it works well and is on several of my projects. bends super nice

You can buy a roll of seamless tubing for less than 20 dollars. A 100 ft roll will do you fine with lots left over for ummm...mistakes.
