    I hope you mean copper coated as in Ni-Cop, not a pure copper line! Pure copper should NEVER be used for brake lines, it will work harden and break. The Nickel-copper, or NI-COP as it's known is OK, the strength of steel with the ease of bending of copper.
    According to the NAPA label, they are Nickel-Copper.
    It isn't an official project until you've bled on it!

        Rusty Gillis used these lines on one of his recent builds and he was very impressed with them. I think I may use them myself on the Sprint.

          I used easy bend lines from Speedway when I did mine, had to make one union about halfway because they only came in certain lengths. I'm not sure if mine are Ni-cop, but they sure bent well. If I had of had a double flare tool, I would have bought a roll of tube, but it was cheaper on me to just buy the pre fitted lengths and fittings to connect them.
