Stainless Steel Brake Lines and gas lines

I wanted to put as much stainless steel replacement lines, bolts,
screws etc. as I could for parts I am replacing. I contacted
Inline Tube (www.inlinetube.com, phone 586-532-1338) and they, of
course, had no idea what an Amphicar was and had no stainless steel
kit ready made for it, but they guesstimated that for around $120 they
could get me enough stainless steel tubing and correct fittings to
make my own lines. They could make the correct metric bubble flare
ends and could flair each end for $3 each (I think there about 11
metal brake lines in the Amphi including the ones in the front wheels
and the one from the reservoir to the master cylinder. Or I could buy
a flaring tool for about $86 to make the correct bubble flares but I
might mess up some ends when I making them so ultimately it would be
cheaper to have them do it unless someone had a bubble (or double)
flaring tool. Does anyone else anticipate putting in stainless steel
brake lines and want to share use of a bubble flare tool? I wonder if
several Amphi owners wanted new lines, if those guys would put
together a kit for the car. Maybe it would be just too few orders for
them to care. Sounds like it would be somewhat cheaper to go with
stainless steel brake lines than the regular steel from Gordons.
Maybe I would try to get a stainless steel gasoline line as well.
