Even with pre-formed lines or reinstalling old lines, make sure the flare at both ends is formed right and not cracked. Make sure area each end seals is clean. Start the fitting at one end, then tweak the bends slightly so the other flared end is centered and square to the hole. Both nuts need to start and go most of the way with just fingers. Get them snug and the flares should seal. Snug is fine, no need to be a gorilla with flare fittings. Once in a while I get a drip and have to go back and tighten one end a little.
