Are custom brake lines DOT legal
I've been piecing together my brake line build over the last few weeks. Today I was told by a local shop it is not legal to build your own brake lines (dot/ insurance wise)...
Is it true that if I use stainless lines with Teflon core that ARE DOT compliant but build them myself they are technically not DOT compliant?
This doesn't make any sense, why would DOT compliant stainless brake hose rated at 3k psi be available to public if when the public builds it it's not compliant....
This is a major deciding factor in my build. I want to build them myself but if I have insurance issues because of it that's a problem
