I bought one of those cheapo double flare tools and did ALL my brake lines on my 39. I had to learn the hard way, it's not easy to get a good flare, it's HARD to get a good flare. Any little bitty mark or any off angle at all, a bur, anything! And the joint leaks! I HATE my cheapo flare tools, but it's all I have. Everybody I know just buys the store bought lines and bends them to fit. ...just my 2 cents
