Brake Line Flaring Tool

Anyone know what kind of flare the Samurai hard lines have? I can borrow a double flaring tool that will do SAE 40 deg flares on 3/16 line, but I also heard there is a metric tool as well.

All you need to know is the angle of the flare. The metric hose should not matter.

You don't need a metric kit for flaring, a standard setup will do it for you.

I think its just the 1/8" line parts that fit int he Zuk ends, a typical SAE assortment will get you the right one though.

Thanks for the info guys. Sounds like the standard SAE will work.
