MC to combo valve lines

My front MC to combo valve brake line was bent up so its short of the fitting by exactly 1 fitting width.

It is an extremly tight little bend with no kinks but if I attempt to bend it more I will kink it.

I already have one fitting that screws into the MC, where the line fitting is supposed to go.

Can I put another fitting into the first fitting to extend it so the line fits? This is the second line that was bent up and I dont want to send out for another, so can I use 2 fittings (one into another) to hook my line up. Is there such a thing as too many fittings?

Other than appearance, as long as you have a good seal, the number of fittings should cause no problems. I always figure, the more connections, the more chance of a leak.
