I called Mark Williams in Louisville yesterday and they said they don't do anything metric.

I called Pirtek and they said they can do it while I wait. I'll check them out today and if that doesn't work I'll go to AAI.

Very interesting! I do find it odd that the 10m x 1 brake fittings I have got from them are not metric!

LOL! I found it odd too. I told him specifically that they were 10mm x 1mm and he said he did not have them.

I ended up going to AAI since it was closer to the office. He had what I needed in stock so I didn't even have to wait. I'll definitely use AAI again.

Not sure what you are working on?

When I lifted my 40 I used factory lines from NAPA to extend my brake lines...

I rotated my rear springs to get the additional 3.5" of wheel base and needed a longer brake line.

I used someone over in the louisville Tech area, by the railroad crossing on Dillon and what is that 42(?), I can't remember the name of the company but they made me some custom lines for my mini-truck to sag p/s conversion. Made them while I waited, they were top notch! and CHEAP!

Oh....forgot about that place....awesome resource! McCoy Sales. They made up the custom PS lines on my V8J-62 and on the previous steering setup on the 40. I have also had them make up hydro lines for the tractors.

Look for a "Brake Quip" dealer. They can make any line in any fitting while you wait. It will cost roughly $30 per hose and well worth it. They even test them to 3000 psi in front of you.

There should be one near you. I have 2 shops within an hour's drive of me, so they are not uncommon.
