Nope, never have.

Goodridge's customer service kicks *** though. I needed a new banjo bolt, and they sent me one free of charge. So just give them a call.

Lets see those pics.

That's why most manufacturers have gone to outter protective shielding on the brake lines to prevent dirt from entering the braid and wearing the teflon inner hose. That and you need to install the line to prevent movement the best you can.

I work for SPL Parts and we cater to the Nissan community, so I have alot of experience with the pro's and con's of what we sell. --- Just some credentials.

You should have bolted that **** out of the way of your wheel when you installed it. That looks horrendous. That **** didn't just happen, dude, sorry...

Ditto looks like it was rubbing something...I have to check mine periodically, cause I have aftermarket suspension, and can't use orginal mounting bracket.

yes.
the NSX forums have horror stories of them busting, more often at the joint near the brake caliper fittings.
dirt/sand gets in betwen the stainless braids and the interior rubber hose.
then rubs a hole right thru, not good.
the rubber coated SS lines (like some neuspeed ones) are your best choice for a street car.

your looks like it might have rubbed on the fork or rotor?

I don't see how anyone making stainless lines could have much of a guarantee. One of the things that happens with stainless lines is that dirt can work its way into the brake and wear a hole in the teflon inner liner. Most braided line manufacturers don't bother putting a protective rubber coating on the outside of the line to prevent this. So bottom line is if you run stainless lines, you need to inspect them regularly and replace as needed.
