brake lines

Your best bet is to buy a tubing bender and flare tool and bend your own.
There are pre-bent lines available from Classictube or finelines for the Nova front end and rear but in between on the '49 Chassis is the problem. Look those two up on the net and give them a call. They might have a solution.

don't forget the master cylinder you want to upgrade the whole system if you have room for the booster you can use power brakes if you get everything front and back for the nova you will only have to make the one front to back line as tbrown said.

I did a complete system on my 55 210 master to the wheels and bought the lines at NAPA, they have a big selection to choose from and I didn't have to cut or flare any of it. The total cost was less than a double flare tool.

i like hero's thought on this. unless you go stainless.
a cheap flare tool will drive you crazy with slipping.
