Default Time to replace brake lines


Three yrs ago, I got a very pristine '99 Regal from Florida of all places. Very nice except it was kept on a concrete slab near the beach for 8-10 months of the year as it was a snow birds car.

The result was I needed to replace the vapor line and both fuel lines that run front to back with GM line. These lines looked galvanized and still look near perfect three winters later.

Now the bad.

Recently I was under the car and noticed the feed line to the front pass. side caliper is nasty/flaky as well as all lines that connect to the above mentioned galvanized lines.

I ordered and paid for GM replacement lines and had planned to install this weekend, but now I read about alternatives which may be better like Cunifer line and Poly-Armour.

Since my GM lines look like plain steel... any thoughts on alternative replacement lines ?
