I had The local Parker Hose guys braze some AN buds on the factory lines and fab up some hoses with fittings to replace the rubber. Same concept as the compression fittings just with the AN ends. They said they couldn't get the metal lines on their equipment to just crimp the hoses on. Anyway, it works fine and after re-installing them I'm glad I did it that way. Routing those lines was a PITA.
I'm sure I paid too much though...
