Default Stuck in Atlanta, blown brake hose, can anyone help me?

I'm in Atlanta at the moment in my '91 C4. The passenger side front brake line (near the caliper) has a nasty cut/split on it. I'm trying desperately to find a shop with the line so I can replace it tomorrow and get back home to Greenville.
I'm at a friend's house near the Buckhead area and he's got limited tools, etc.
Any ideas where to get the brake line? Most shops are closed tomorrow, do any of you have any strings you can pull to find a brake line?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know there are a bunch of great folks on here from the Atlanta area, can anyone help me with the brake stuff tomorrow morning?

The national chain stores will be open around 9am, it's a long shot at best that will have a factory line in stock, but you never know. If they don't have an original rubber line, ask for a SS model, there may be some outside chance that there might be a "performance" line sitting around in the back.

The dealership and junk yards will be closed on Sunday -

Good Luck!

Trey - just getting back in town myself. If you still have the need I have the old rubber lines off my 90 C4 when I replaced them. They are in good shape and would get you home. Only 2 issues I am about 60 miles outside of Atlanta near Athens, GA and am tied up most of the day on Sunday. I could possibly meet you somewhere a little closer, say Conyers.

I will check back on the board in the morning, say around 9am or PM me overnight.

Everything turned out great!
A rennlister, spentmiles (aka Greg), hooked me up with his old stock brake hose and a brake bleeder. I had it all squared away in less than 2 hours and was back on the road. I'm glad the brake hose didn't go while I was on the interstate or in Atlanta traffic...

Thanks again to all who offered to help (and most certainly to those who did)! This is a great community.

If you're ever in need of help near Greenville, SC, feel free to get in touch with me.
