Tips and Techniques for Replacing Hard Brake Line from M/C to Rear of Beetle

I may need to replace the hard brake lines on my '68 Beetle. Any tips or techniques for replacing the main brake line from front to back? And can you successfully bend the brake lines with your hands or do I need to buy a bending tool?

you can bend them with your hands carefully but you can buy a tool for the job very cheaply

Order the proper grommets for where it passes through the firewalls

Cheers guys. I will source a bending tool and yes have the correct grommets already.
