If you're interested - Doug Reid sells pre-bent brake lines for (big)
his email address and a 2008 price list.
1/4" holes sounds too big for the brake line clips. The fuel line holes
are larger than the brake line holes. Assuming I get the car up in the
air sometime soon, I'll see what the hole diameter is, how many there
are and the spacing.
