Disc brake conversion/ brake lines

just installed a disc brake Conversion on my 72 cutlass and at the point of getting the lines hooked up but now thinking that I should just replace those as well since I would have to modify them anyway , any advice as to buy a prebent kit vs making them my self from scratch. Iíd like them to look good but not sure if they make the proper kit without modifying. My car was a drum/drum and has a distribution valve on the frame now but the new kit came with a new prop valve mounted to the master. Any advice / ideas welcome !

Take a look at “The Right Stuff” or “Summit’s” website, they should all of the pre-bent lines you need.

Make your own with cupro/nickel brake tubing, then never worry about replacing them again.
