Where to get brake line flare nuts?

Hey guys,
Has anyone here made their own hard brake lines? I'm having a hard time finding a place to buy the flare nuts. I called Porsche, but they only sell preassembled lines.

If you can get the pitch and thread of the nut you should be able to buy a replacement at a auto parts store. I messed up a flare nut on my wrx before and I had to cut it off and reflare and replace the brake line. I bought the nut at autozone. Hope that helps.

Go to auto parts store with the nut and buy a complete line. They sell in different lengths, buy the cheapest one with the correct fittings and just pull off the nuts. They are less than $10 for short lengths
