Greetings all, I am replacing the hard fuel and brake lines front to back on my '73 Z for two reasons: They don't look as good as everything else which has been recently re-plated, and the flare nuts have all seen better days. All the hardware, brackets and so forth have been re-plated with clear silver zinc instead of finishing up with the gold zinc step. I like it because the car is blue and I have a blue and silver motif going on. I'd like to go with stainless steel hard brake and fuel lines all around for the looks number one, and two, corrosion resistance long term. Classictube.com who has been around many years makes hard lines either way--stainless or OEM. I have been advised to stay away from stainless steel because they are too hard to manipulate if need be, and because seating the connections is a bit more tedious. OEM hard lines will have a more dull steel look which won't look as cool but would be easier to bend. I know I could re-plate my lines, but again, most of the nuts are fried. Anybody out there experienced on this matter and willing to share their thoughts? I'm ready to go either way. Thanks, Doug
