    Default Where to get Copper Nickle brake line in OZZY

    HI
    Trying to avoid the wait from purchasing oveseas .Only need about 3mtrs but most sell by the 7 mtr roll .
    Is there a reasonablly priced source in OZZY ??




    Copper nickle is fitted to many Euro cars for brake line and can withstand much higher pressures than straight copper. Straight Copper brake lines are illegal unless factory fitted [very old car I assume ] .

    Corrosion resistance is exceptional of copp/nick
    Old holdens were fitted with Terne coating fuel tank / brake and fuel lines
    Modern day aftermarket replacement zinc coating is a very poor product . The coating depends on how long its been dipped to short=poor corrosion protection . My experience is it gets corroded badly = limited life

    My Porsche uses those lines, they called it Cupronickel and it had a lifetime warranty so it’s pretty good stuff. Where can you buy the 7 metres? Cheers.

    hi
    Ebay from the UK real cheap with/without fittings .
    I ran out. Managed to find 1/2 roll at brake place [old stock from closed down shop] for a fair cost.
    Used about 10mtrs for a HQ .
