The "bomb" end actually is metal tubing, I believe. Be sure to discharge
pressure in the system (pump the brake pedal a bunch with the engine off)
prior to cracking open the line. All the fluid in the reservoir will run
out the opened line. Might be a good time to flush it. Otherwise you can
pinch off the line from the reservoir to the pump.
