I just go to Shucks or NAPA and buy a metric brake line close to
the right lenth.  Then bend it to fit.  They come in 6"
increments and a bending tool is like $5.  If you have an extra
couple inches its easy to take up with an extra bend or two.
NOt the BEST way but the Metric Double Flares are a pain.
