Brake line needed for my 280se. Help:)

Hi All
I'm looking for this brake line from the front left side. On my 280se. It connects from the flexible line straight to the caliper. Mine has a leak at the bracket joint. Any advice would be appreciated.
Cheers John

Thanks.. I really appreciate your help. I was thinking that was going to be a hard piece to locate.

I would love to make my own, but how would you incorporate the green holding bracket piece? I don't see how to change the line and still use the bracket.
Cheers John

Ohhhhh, gotcha. The image didn't come through on my phone when I answered previously.

You'll probably need to replace that whole thing.

I'm not familiar with the cost, but have you considered taking it to a welding shop and having them braise (braze?) over that leak?

That's a thought, will check the price to buy one, but will talk to my buddy and see if he could braze it.
Cheers John.
