New wine, old wine skins, bad idea....John is 100%, get the set, you will have all the fittings new and the pipes will be all precut to the correct length(they were for my TR3).
Bonus: Project time will be cut in half, equals more driving time!

Can’t see the point of farting around using a mix of old and new pipe, especially where brakes are concerned. Fit new throughout.

While I have never done this, a good friend of mine has extensive experience in this area and I feel he could cut the fittings off of my old pipes and install them on the new lines and bend the pipe as needed. Is there a good reason not to go the bulk pipe route instead of buying a complete set of pipes? I'm probably going to purchase a braided ss hose set to use with the new pipes.
