Just finished. I don't think you really need a flare wrench. Actually it might be a little easier with an open wrench. The flare wrench is meant to protect the nut on the brake line which is what you're replacing anyway so any damage wouldn't be an issue.

Anyway, had to do the old fashion manual bleed, which most people think might be risky. Lol's, hopefully I didn't blow the master cylinder.
