Yeah... DONT. you will remove metal and weaken it. Just cut it off and reflare it. Flares are easy to do. If you have to replace the whole line so be it. You should have enough slack to cut a little off and reflare it.Dont cheap out on your brake system.If there is rust inside the flare it may have a crack in it. Take a good look at it just to see.
