Brake pipes posted?

Hi all,

Right last bit of shopping i *need* to do (ie there will be more no doubt :rolleyes: ) but last bit i need for the current repairs is brake pipes

I know a local place can knock something up for me however it will be a royal pain in the bum to get trailing arms to them (ie taking trailing arms on bus and to work with me etc etc) and fiat only charge about £8 inc vat on them but will it be safe for fiat to post these to me or am i right in thinking due to bends etc they are just too deilcate to be posted? :(

other thing is, any of u guys fancy running to fiat then to mine? :idea: :slayer: :p
right the fiat ones come pre shaped not rolled as they are steel.from just sheding some skin and blood on mine if it involves intricate fitting then i would go with copper. ive fitted the steel ones but want to replace them as the ones i have fitted are not neat due to the stiffness of the pipe.
i'll be starting a thread on brake flaring tools as im just going to make my own since i'll be doing the rears as well in the near future

old pipes snapped though dave and got bent a bit too when i was snapping them closer to the union to get a socket on them :( not sure i fancy making my own brake pipes up with a flaring kit etc :(
you only need the length and the ends fitted to get them made up.its no big thing making them as you are only flaring the ends of the pipe
