7.5 m run of copper pipe about £ 10,Clark flaring kit about £23,no doubts about your ability to do a good job Wintonian going by previous posts you have made about a variety of jobs you have done.
The last time I needed to replace a section - for a similar reason to the OP - I just measured the length and got it made up by a seller on Fleabay, of which this is one.

Copper does work harden and crack even when clipped at 300mm centres. Why do you think it is illegal to use in many countries. Why use copper when kunifer is so much safer. How many pages saying its unsafe to heat with the hob even when taking precautions but the same are happy to use copper when there is a better alternative, They are perfectly legal but how many use remould tyres.
I don't think many know the line pressures involved in brake systems. General braking up to and around 800psi / 55 bar and in emergency, severe conditions 2000psi / 136 bar. I will leave copper pipe were it belongs, and that's not on vehicle brakes in my opinion.
Cuni, horrible, dangerous stuff to work with. Be careful if grinding, even cutting.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical fault.
Wromg. If the job is done correctly on what grounds would it concern the insurance company.Originally Posted by mistericeman;correctly4
However usiing copper may well be considered a detrimental modification.not used or recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Might find yourself reaching for the smelling salts!
The USA bans copper brake pipes and they are at least as much a can do DIY nation as the UK and probably possesses less of a H&S mindset.
France may have a prohibition on the use of copper. A visit to the Testing Station and asking if ones vehicle would pass the biennial test would be in order for the OP, could save a repeat job.
