Re the copper /nickel brake lines

I said I'd update on the availability in Canada and the US.
Well I Can't do so since the reps of this company have not sent me any info
It sounded like a good product. But I guess we'll have to wait for that info to get out.
Sorry Guys

May be my question sounded stupid to you, but here in Bulgaria, I went to some shops and anywhere they offered me copper tubes as brake lines
Furthermore, I cannot order new brake lines from USA because the lines are so long that it is imposable to ship overseas
I would need to order roll of tube and made it myself.

Thank you for your help.

Ivo, If your local shops offered you Copper-Nickel brake line I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be OK to use on your American car. In fact it should last longer than the steel lines that came on it.
