So I was looking st my car and noticed my brake lines are getting a little iffy. And on line I found some sources for premade fuel lines, which I will get, but I'm having trouble finding brake lines. I would like to do All the brake lines on the car and just get em all done. Bending all of that line doesnt sound fun..

They are like hens teeth, if you find a set that will probably be the only one available and for some reason the aftermarket suppliers are not making them. If you can't find them then it's make your own, stainless steel, copper-nickel, pvc clad, green coated being the choices in lines. There's cheaper material but being in a road salt state not much need to consider it IMO.

I have done it.. for steel lines you need a line bending tool. It's not that expensive ($20?) but nickel/copper and certainly copper lines are much softer so you can bend those by hand. It won't be as pretty as they were originally bent, but they're under the car anyway.
Don't mix different materials per axle as they might affect the ABS due to copper being softer as steel, so don't do left rear in steel and left right in copper or something.
And you'd be surprised how much brake line you need for a PA, I don't remember exactly but it was easily around 50 feet... might have been 75 as well.

I know how to do it... just be nice if someone made them already. Lot of lines on the car.. because of ABS. Since it doesn't appear to be too bad on the ones on the ABS module, I might just do the main lines since those are the only really bad ones.

Check if your brake lines have those original springs around them whatever they are called, they are the worst, all of my brake lines were badly rusted under those springs.
I've had original brake lines shipped (not PA), if they are longer as about 2 feet they will just roll them up anyway it's next to impossible to ship a 10+ feet brake line. I had to straighten them out, still looked like I hand made them, probably took an equal amount of time as just making them from scratch.
