Hey I removed all my lines across the firewall on my 620 and was going to have them re-produced. The shop that I was going to use has since closed the doors. Does anybody know anywhere here in the Northwest that can replicate the factory lines or is there any companies out there selling them pre-made?

Buy a tubing bender and flare kit. Do it yourself.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

I’ve done 90% of this truck myself. I’ve played with the bender, def not my thing. I could do it but I know it would totally frustrate me and the end result would just not be up to my standards. Nope this needs a professional

Possibly speak with an aircraft mechanic at your local small airport it would be within their skill set

You cab buy pre-made lengths already flared and bend them over a baseball bat. Use string to get the lengths measured.

Wish so cal was closer. 😪I talked to a shop in Portland that said they can do it. That doesn’t mean I’ll like the finished product right? I’ve spent so many years on this truck. Every visible nut bolt and bracket is new or been re dipped it has to be near perfect. I’ve never posted any pics. My hope is this summer my truck will be at Canby . It’s a driver but cleaner than most 78 datsun trucks I’ve seen around
