Collision Repair & Refinish
Bend stainless steel brake lines with your bare hands and use a regular flaring tool. No special tools required
Bend stainless steel brake lines with your bare hands and use a regular flaring tool.
CLARENCE, NY, October 27 -- SSBC has developed a dead soft brake line that can be bent with your hands and is still strong enough to hold brake line pressures. Many cars have been modified and pre-bent line will not work, so modifying stock lines are a must. This is a great time to replace lines and bend them from straight sticks. With stainless lines and fittings, this will be the last time you’ll ever have to replace your lines. But what about Ni-cop lines, don’t the do the same thing? Ni-cop lines are plated lines but still have steel fittings. So, rust occurs at the fittings regardless, and removal or replacement is going to be needed. With SSBC lines, everything is stainless.
