speak to goodridge, they'll do you lines with the top end for a corsa and the bottom for the veccy v6.

i got mine from them, top connection for nova - bottom connection for willwoods

will have to replace them anyways as the ones with abs are completely different.
so rather than bending new copper lines into place which will be an asshole, i think it will be easier and will look with fully braided hoses

pushon aeroquip fittings are expensive.....

Seriously - I'd only bother running braided brake lines in a 'show' trackcar which had 1 line running IN CAR to the back (with bias adjuster inline), then T'd to the rear brakes, and out through the floor.

Its a waste of cash. IMO
