69 Imapala 4door Sport

Im doing a complete brake replacement on my ride and that includes all new lines. I am wondering what is the best place to get replacement lines and proportioning valves. Would it be easier to buy unbent stock line and setup the system myself? What gauge line would I use? Also, the same questions for the fuel lines but I guess thats a topic for a different forum.

Thanks again, whenever I get around to reading the article about how to post pictures I will throw a couple up.

Choice is mild steel or stainless tubing. The tubing size is quarter inch OD. I thought it was 3/16 like the rest of Chevys smaller cars like the Chevelle, Camaro and Nova but every site I have checked to verify the size claims it is the larger sized tubing.

I would go with pre bent if the price difference was decent.
