I had quite a bit of these. My car is EFI and I wanted all fuel lines except a few feet for flex from the frame to engine to be 3/8" stainless. I didn't trust aluminum tube to not workharden then crack. At 40psi, a crack can spray a LOT of fuel.

So, were you able to find a tool to make a double AN flare, did you correct the angle with a second flare tool, or just leave the flare the wrong angle?

Thanks for all the pics. Glorious!
Thanks
The flare is correct to the fitting, this is my flare tool I use,

Today's update, got the stone protection installed in the rear fender wells.

Made up and installed the heat sheld to help protect the master cylinders from exhaust pipe heat.

Craig,

What material did you use for the heat shield? Looks nice.
