So I'm making new lines for my a/c and putting new fittings on braided steel hoses.

How do you guys finish the end of the braiding off at the edge of the new fitting? I put on some black tape but it kind of looks crappy.

Your thoughts or methods would be appreciated!

I did stainless steels braided fuel lines on my engine swap, but I used Russell AN fittings, the ends
Of the braid are Inside the fitting, do you have some
Pics?
These are 134a fittings and the steel braid can't be inside the fitting, I'd like to fine a stainless or chrome "clamp" or something to dress up the end of the steel braid, instead of or over top of the tape. Any thoughts?

You do know that you have to use a nylon lined stainless hose for A/C work? As far as assembly, it's the same as regular stainless hose and fittings. Not quite sure where the tape comes into play other that cutting the hose to length.
The hose slides inside the fitting and gets crimped, these are the proper hoses and fittings. I just need something to stop the braiding from fraying where it meets the fitting.
