Two questions really, first does anyone know of something (rod, tubing) etc. that is fairly cheap that can be used to bend up patterns for brake lines. I'm really weird about neat tubing and I'm tired of ruining good ($$) brake tubing. It needs to be inexpensive, straight and will take and hold a bend. Second question is kind of silly but I'm curious why parts store straight brakelines have always had a long and short male end fitting. Why the two different length. I've never seen one that wasn't made like that so it must have some purpose other than making people wonder why.
