Default Front brake hoses?

I was working on my '58 HT yesterday and noticed that there are cracks in my front brake hoses. OK, I look in the catalogs and they list a single hose per side. Um, my T-bird has two hoses on each side, as seen in the pictures below.

Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any idea where I can get the parts I need?

Thanks,
Mel

Yep, that looks just like the lines on the front of my 58. I am also getting ready to replace mine, I can let you know what I come up with.

Thanks. I ordered the parts last week from Macs, they had two hoses per side listed for the '58 bird, one 14" and one 15". Hopefully they are the right ones - I'll report when I get them.

I got the hoses, or should I say all but one, in the mail. They look like the right hoses with the right connectors. I should have the final hose in a couple of weeks, and I'll report on the install then.
