Steel Braided Brake Lines

My recommendation? Unless it is a dedicated track car and you are willing to
change them out seasonally...don't use them. The braided cover traps grit
and sand which then chafes/erodes the underlying rubber line. And with the
covering, you have no way to SEE what condition they are in....until it's
too late and you blow a line in mid brake.
