Thanks to Jerome Lambourne for providing this article.

There is always that moment where a proud car owner lifts the hood to reveal his engine.  What will be there?  A grease covered big block or a polished, trimmed out powerhouse of beauty.  If you follow Jerome's instructions below, showing you how he cut braided teflon lines, you will be able to enhance the appearance of your Vette.  Braided lines are used for just about any fluids, particularily common for brakes and transmission cooling.  Jerome's pictures show how to do teflon hoses, as the procedure is different from rubber steel braided hosing.  Teflon hoses have a better resistance to certain chemicals.  

0001

Tape where you are going to cut so the hose doesn't fray.  I used a grinder with a cutting wheel.

0002

Slide the lower piece over the hose, then fray the end with a small screwdriver.

0003

Press the ferrule over the inner hose until it bottoms out.

0004

Place the end into the vise and lightly oil it.

0005

Press/Twist the hose and ferrule over the end until it's snug.  Slide the base up and tighten.
