    Making the perfect double flare

    Is easy with this tool from Eastwood.com

    Hello, Custom & Hot Rod Life! We've been busy in the garage since March and we've just came out long enough to get supper, wash our hands and publish this video and short article. Back in March we noticed that "The Rustom", our 1949 Ford custom two door sedan was in dire need of a better brake master cylinder, we also had a problem with a '83 Porsche 944 that needed a new brake master cylinder and a brake booster. With all of the brake work that lay ahead of us we decided to spend the $199.99 for Eastwood's Professional Tubing and Brake Line Bender.

    We are happy to say the tool is well worth the price!


    This is a great tool! If your next project includes the need for double flares, you'll find this tool to be an absolute time saver! We just wish we had bought it 10 years ago!

    Gotta run, tribe! Stay safe, wear a mask and most important of all!

    Keep on Cruisin'!
