I'm plumbing my brake lines and I was wondering if it is OK to use flexible brake hose instead of tubes. Seems like it would be much easier to plumb. IS there anything wrong with doing that?

Read this first;
We do not claim that any individual hose assembly is certifiable to D.O.T. standards, and we therefore must advise you that they are sold to be used on off-road applications only. We make no claim of usability or suitability for highway or road use. Teflon brake hoses must be installed by an experienced professional mechanic. After installation each hose must both clean and free flowing. There must be no possibility that the installed hose assemblies can stretch, crimp or kink under any conditions of wheel travel and steering angle. As with any hose installation, periodic inspection of hose condition is essential.
Now if you still want them then go here http://www.amstreetrod.com/html/speed-flex.html Have fun <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

you will loose a lot of your stopping
power because the pressure will expand
the hose before it applys enough pressure to the brakes to stop you.
