As of now I've got no issues with my lines. If the day comes they need tending to I'm going that route. I was dreading a brake line job that needed to be done on my Honda. All the hard lines. Master cylinder to all four corners..rotted. The thought of all that bending was a big turn off. My past experiences with steel line didn't go to well and I never got the hang of using the bending tool. Some of you I'm sure are familiar with it, at the time I knew nothing about all the ultra cool, fancy bendable tubing that's out there now. Well once I discovered it, viola... Did my Honda in no time.Go get yourself a coil of 5/16" hard line. I believe the trans lines are 5/16" .Get an inexpensive tubing bender and go at it. The transmission lines are fairly easy to make and they do not have to be exactly like the factory lines. Just bend them neatly and keep them away from contacting other parts. Try to get them as close as possible to the OEM and use the line holder that is on the oil pan. Cross them over the lower transmission cover and use a P clip and bolt them in place there. I have a few of the hard aluminum cross over lines that I would be willing to part with for a fee. I have OEM new and used. Send me a message if I can help. I think that you can buy the transmission lines from an aftermarket company. Maybe even the engine oil cooler lines. Look in any of the 4 wheel and off road magazines. I see ads all the time for these parts. I never bought any transmission lines I always made them myself. I hope that is helpful to you. Good Luck with your project. Note you will need a double flaring tool to flare the ends of the transmission cooler lines.
