Brake line help on my 66

This nice weather today made me want to work on my 66... The next thing I've got to do is bend and run the metal brake lines coming off the proportioning valve to the master cylinder and to both front soft lines. My problem is that I've never bent any lines and I need to buy a brake line flare kit. Can anyone offer any advice on my install? and recommend a flare kit to purchase? Any and all comments welcome. Oh yeah, if you want to come do it for me you are more than welcome to.

I used to have a flaring tool, but I do not know where it got off to. I need to pick me up another one. I've got a cheap (one-size fits all bender) - wish I had a better one. One that has several groves for different size tubing.

I didn't get the steel lines run today, I ran into a problem with the soft lines coming off the caliper, it hits the I-beam when it's turned to the right.

Ain't customizing fun?

My stepfather bought a double flaring tool from NAPA last year. It's holding up well but it's still a pain to use. (for me anyway) -kept getting the flare crooked.

Do you have the brake lines on upside down?
