Compression fittings are a real nono in most states for brake lines. I have seen on drag and raod race cars the use of Swagelok or Hoke stainless fittings. These are really not compression fittings in the sense of the word like copper or brass plumbing fittings. The Swagelok and Hoke fittings are good to 10,000psi, far above any pressure the brake system generates.
