No worries -- I buy twice the amount of material I think I need.  That way there is no pressure to use a substandard flare.  If it doesn't look like a factory flare, cut it off and do it again.  Much cheaper than the alternative.  I also do a garage test once everything is back together, whereby I pump the brakes hard 10 times or so, then hold full pedal for a full 45 seconds, check for leaks.   Gives a litle piece of mind before you need the brakes for real.

Cheers,

Mike
