The nylon hoses are OK, but just to be sure they didn't rub through any more, I went with steel. No issues at all afterward, but do be careful when installing these hoses and fittings. They are aircraft-quality (mine are, anyway) and the fittings can be damaged if tightened too hard.
Mine are to, but whet is wired is I have had this kit on for 8 months and it just started doing this.
