Source for #12/M27x2mm Aluminum A/C Line

I'm looking for a source for #12 a/c aluminum tubing with an M27x2mm female fitting on both ends. I've found #12 with SAE fittings/threads, but not any metric in this size. I want the tubing that comes in straight lengths that can be bent to shape. I'll probably need a length of around 36"

Does anyone know where this sort of tubing can be sourced?

Thanks!

if you can't find it, buy the fittings and have the line made up by TIG welding.

I thought about that, but would really like to find an off-the-shelf solution.


I also thought about using aluminum brazing rod to join a M27/#12 fitting to a section of aluminum tubing. I thought if the barbed end of the fitting would sliding into the tubing, it could be brazed together. I would need a source for #12 tubing for this to be an option.

Anyone know where I can get #12-sized tubing?
