Hi

I am about to replace all my brake componants.
I have managed to fin everything except the steel pipes.

Can anyone tell me, is it safe to use Copper pipes? I can get the ones made for LP Gas. They are the same dimensions, but I am afraid of the pressure factor. Will this give any problems?

Here in the US, I believe copper brake pipes are illegal and IIRC, are a safety inspection failure point. I do think the copper/nickel alloy stuff is allowed. Stainless is the best you can get, but you need a special flaring tool as the regular flaring tools will break when trying to work on stainless tubing. Additionally, stainless costs a pantload of money. In any case, the regular lines that the parts vendors sell should last a good long while.
