If you know...let me know.
DM, what your looking for is in the plumbing section (Lowes, HD). Ask for the plumbing "supply lines". These are the hoses used to connect the water supply coming out of your bathroom wall to the sink, or commode. There will be varying lengths and some will be white (don't want) and some will be stainless steel (want).
The catch is that you are going to buy an 8 or 10 inch length of hose that has connectors on both ends. You're going to cut off both ends, and yank out the plastic hose that is wrapped withing the stainless steel braid. Twist off one end and connect the other to the nipple in your LT.
You are basically "bastardising" a very common piece of plumbing supply.
