custom power steering lines?

hey guys

i ripped out my old power sterring system rack pump lines everything

im rplacing with a new rack and a new pump but want to make custom lines and have them going to an oil cooler in between my rad and intercooler

has anyone ever made a custom braided lines for the power steering? if so how did you do it?

my main problem is the tube ends that go into the rack are o-right type push in held by a bolt and plate. while the ones to the pump are threaded so that part is easy.

im thinking of cutting the lines going to the rack from the rack just before the rubber hose and braising on a fitting to convert to -AN. or flaring the other end and doing it that way.
