ss brake line install

I was wondering if anyone has tips on removing and installing ss braided brake lines. Would i need flared nut wrenches? Or torch them to take them off?

Get the flared wrench for the size you need. Normally brake lines are not cooperative. And its really not a good thing to strip.

Mine cooperated when I did them at 30k. The flared wrench is an absolute must-have. Also, keep a spray bottle with water near by so you can spray everything off pretty well. Brake fluid is nasty stuff.
