Brake line replacement

86 Pontiac Fiero

I'm replacing my brake lines with stainless steel ones. What's the best thread sealant. Loctite, teflon tape, or nothing?

Nothing is required. It should seal just fine just make sure everything is free of dirt and torque to specs.

Brake lines depend on the slight deformation of the soft metal to make a seal. I personally like to use antisieze on the ends to make any future work easier.
