I just used 3/16, double flare and the Toy fittings. But I never measured the OD of the old line, probably 3/16 or damn close.

Nope, double flare. You can get a decent one for less than $30, made in the USA, not HF. With a little practice, or reading the instructions, anyone can do it.
Brake line is cheap.

Edit: I clamp the tool in a vise, seems to work better that way and I can get some honk on the thing.

It's pretty easy to understand once you have a set of directions, if you havn't done it before. The dies are the critical piece.

You can reuse your old ones. But they should be available about anywhere. It is usually much cheaper to buy the line with the fittings on it, cut to your length and make just one flare. Cheaper than buying the fittings and the line separately. Your Toyota dealer still stocks or can order pre-bent lines.
