I am looking at these tools and supplies:

What do you think? Is it what I need?

I will add tube nuts as well.

Thanks for your help,

The rolls of line are easy to work with as they are a little softer than regular straight line and you can go up to 25" with no joints. If you are trying to match a factory line it is more difficult when using the rolls of line as you need to make the straight parts straight. If you are just doing a repair or dont care if your straight sections are perfect then the rolls are perfect. The do make a tool to straighten the rolled line, but buy the time you get through buying the tool it would have probably been cheaper just to buy straight lengths of line.
