Default Custom brake line (flexible) recommendation

Does anyone have a recommendation for a shop that will make custom brake lines? I would prefer one on the north side. I was considering going to Pirtek. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Thanks. And no, I had not heard of them. It has been a very long time since I owned a dragster.

Just whip out the gold card and get busy on that! MW has been a huge name in the performance world for a very long time.

LOL! I have enough expensive hobbies. I had a 102" Slingshot when I lived near Fremont Raceway. I never got it on the track and sold the chassis for $500 (cheap). I found out a week later that my rail was actually the first one to break 8 seconds. The guy I sold it to took the chassis to a nostalgia drag on a trailer. The guy that originally built it bought it in the spot for $6K. This was the Saturday after I sold it.

Oh well. I have Cruisers for my motorhead fix these days...
