I went to three auto parts stores yesterday (Napa in Broomfield & Louisville and Advanced Auto Broomfield) trying to find a 10x1mm inverted flare brake line of about 40." No luck, any suggestions?

hard line? that's odd, my checker has them..there in the back, so the employees may not know they've got em. the napa warehouse had them across from the counter on the left side, kinda hidden.

Yep, I was looking for hard line. All of the shops let me get behind the counter...very frustrating.

The stores all sell the bubble flare hard lines. You have to use a flaring tool to create the double flare needed from the bubble flare. I found them at the big napa warehouse too.

The lines i got at checker were double flare. if it's bubble flare, it's probably a fuel or air line, not a hydraulic line.
