Removing rear brake proportioning valve

My new ABS delete - brake master cylinder/servo system has an adjustable proportioning valve. I would like to remove the rear factory valve and replace with an "off the shelf" tee if possible.

Has anybody done this and has any insight?

Wondering what flares Lotus used there.

Wondering if there is enough slack in the lines to bolt in an off the shelf tee with slightly different dimensions.

I am thinking I need to plan on cutting the flares off and re flaring to std 45 degree but that will shorten the lines even more.

Maybe I need to look a just installing new lines from the new tee to where the hard lines join the flex lines on the suspension.
