Unhappy SS lines - leak from hard line after install - help!

Well, after fighting with one of the nuts on the hard line and mangling it up pretty bad, when I finally connected up the Stoptech SS lines it's leaking brake fluid from where the hard line mates with the SS line.

It's only a real slow leak with the car at rest, but when I bled the brakes I noticed a small puddle under this connection.

Any options, besides a new hard line install at the dealer? Even though the connecting area is damp from brake fluid, I was thinking I would hit it with some very fast drying strong epoxy (hopefully something that can resist heat and brake fluid) & that might seal it down. But I'm sitting here stuck at home and can't reach an auto parts store.

Any thoughts? I would REALLY appreciate any help...
