HELP!!! 39 Dodge front brake lines

I am searching for a pair of 39 Dodge front flex brake lines. I don't care if they are stock or not. My project runs but won't stop. If you know where I can get stock lines or someone who can make them with the correct lines,....PLEASE.....let me know. this has turned into a real project stopper.
Thank you

Have you tried Ply-do?
What do the ends look like? I know when i have an oddball I look at russel or goodridge adapters to go from whatever weird end is on the wheel to AN, then get a braided SS ine to adapt to my hard lines. Real weirdo calipers or wheel cylinders get drilled and tapped for a banjo bolt so adaptation is simplified.

I used to spend hours going through my raybestos illustrated buyers guide looking for stock type rubber hoses with the correct ends and length. it was very time consuming and sometimes even cost more than doing it in SS.

If you can give the end type, dimension, and length I will try to look something up for you.

later, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

Madd, glad to see you still alive and kickin'. Mopar tended to use the same brake stuff for years. If you have one of the bad ones intact enough, you could just carry it with you to the parts store and find one that will work. I think some of their books (yeah, not all of the parts houses are 100% computerized) have a section on flexible brake lines with pictures, dimensions such as length and size/type fittings.

I used to have a 39 Plymouth- I found every part I ever looked for thru the ads in Hemmings. I was amazed how much NOS stuff there was out there for the 39. Don't know if the brake lines would still work though, now that I think about it. Bill
