Easy to find on Amazon etc etc.... Just search for "S312 brake line"

I purchased these from Benson Auto. Their part number is S312, steel brake line 3/16 x 12". This was an over the counter item. I had been looking to get one made but they had these already done. They may be a little long but it would not be hard to cut to the proper length and re flair the end. They were $2.56 Can. About 25 cents US.

Interesting. I would think the lines would have M10 X 1 metric fittings.

I was commenting that the lines on the GL should be metric. And metric hard lines are available, I just don't think that the S312 is metric. I searched a few days ago for metric steel brake lines on Amazon and found some. Appear to be for VWs.
