I had to replace the flex line on my '94 100. It wouldn't
budge, and so I had to cut the darn hardline. My local FLAPS
(Robbins in Concord NH) has hard brake lines in both metric
and SAE? sizes, in 6" increments. I used one that was too
long and just added a loop to it to make it fit. 

Still works fine almost 2 years later.
