Double flares are tough to do. Cut the tubing with a very sharp tubing cutter. Then measure the amount of tube sticking out of the holder with the adaptor. Then install the adaptor into the tubing and make the first "inward" flare. Remove the adaptor and finish the second flare. When you finish look at the end to see if the tubing cracked. You might think of replacing the section of tubing.

Good Luck
