I'm trying to get the metal brake lines detached from the master brake cylinder and the flexi hoses but the 11mm nuts just won't move. I might have flexed the metal lines too much with trying to remove the nuts.
Any suggestions to get them of or do I now have to do new metal lines?

Just snip the hard lines off near the 11mm nut ,then you can use a ring spanner or socket and ratchet to get the buggers off. You'll have to replace the hard lines obviously.

OK Ed. Thought that was my option but was hoping to keep the metal lines. Hey Ho. It is just something else that is more work than I wanted or needed.
On the last bits for the Bay Window. In saying that I have not started the engine yet after giving it an overhaul.
Heres hoping.
