I purchased the Eastwood flaring kit (49001) at the spring Carlisle show with the intent of making new brake lines for my 71 super beetle. The person I spoke with at the show indicated that the kit would make ‘what ever I need’.
I have started making the lines, and the flares are forming really well, but they don’t look quite like the ones on the original lines, or the replacement lines from the dealer. They just don’t have the same profile. I wouldn’t be so picky, but these are brake lines!!
Am I being overly cautious and these will tighten up fine or do I have the wrong tool?
