Great experience except one thing

Default Great experience except one thing

I ordered from you guys a Kodiak disc brake kit, EOH actuator, and the SS tubing kit. I thought I was making a better selection than the hose. Everything was great except I am now sourcing NICOPP brake lines locally because you have to have a special flare tool to do SS brake lines. The SS brake tubing kit I got from you was just a little too long, so I cut the tubing and attempted to put a double flare on, and a standard double flare tool will not work on SS tubing. It takes a special $300 flare tool that no parts store has locally to do SS lines. I would not even offer a SS tubing kit to DIY people like myself, and would offer NICOPP instead. In the end it is 100% my fault for not knowing better, but I figured you may want the feedback. Thanks for everything else, great products shipped quickly and well packaged.

All you had to do was make coils in the lines to take up the excess . Should have called tech before you cut them
