If I get a kit, all of the flaring issues would be gone so the only other thing is bending.

bsloop, if you've worked with the SS is it OK on the bending and can I just use a simple $10 tube bender from Autozone, or do I need something more specialized?

And your link confirmed my flaring discovery on SS lines:

STAINLESS STEEL
BRAKELINE TUBING
CANNOT BE CUT
AND REFLARED
IN THE FIELD

BRAKE LINE TUBING
REQUIRES A DOUBLE FLARE
PROCESS TO COMPLY WITH
D.O.T. REQUIREMENTS, AND STAINLESS STEEL
TUBING REQUIRES SPECIAL TOOLING TO ACCOMPLISH THIS.
