Should I be using ISO bubble flare or double flare?

I have rusted/rotting connections at the flex line and 2
of the hard lines need replacing.

I'm reasonably certain that you'll have a metric bubble flare. We had a page with a complete how to on brake lines. It's now dead due to photobucket wanting a ransom for my pictures.

I cracked open the lines - destroying the nut.
Revealed it was indeed ISO bubble flare.

My inline flaring kit is on its way. Replacing with
better nuts (14mm from VW/audi). The Volvo 11m brass
are way too soft.
