Where to find stainless brake lines?

Looking for the best price possible on a set of stainless brake lines. Looking for red or "clear" if possible.

Pedders is the only one who makes red ones I believe. But Racing Brake lines are the cheapest.

Well, the line is stainless and the sheath is obviously clear.

Thanks Stig, I know Granatelli sells a set in red and blue but wasn't sure if they were any good or not.

I know Crown Automotive makes them for Jeeps. Can't imagine why they wouldn't make them for Camaros.

I wouldn't buy from Granatelli, but that's just my personal opinion.

Looking for the same thing as well. Found those Granatelli lines, but that thread scared me away - I usually take those things with a grain of salt, but geez!
Found Goodridge for $158 but they are not red.
Looks like I am back to square one.
Just don't get why these brake lines are so expensive...just crazy for what they are.

Edit:
Found MTI lines in red: http://www.lmperformance.com/parts/M...012/56905.html

I agree but unfortunately didn't know that before my purchase of rotors and lines. Thankfully the rotors have worked awesome and the lines I have are clear and have worked good as well.

Racing Brake are definitely the best bang for your buck stainless brake lines for the Camaro.
