connecting ballcock supply line?


I am re setting my toilet, I have a 3/8" bendable crome supply line. When connecting to the toilet I have a plastic nut, plastic washer, and rubber cone, in what order do they go on? I placed the rubber cone inside the plastic nut, then placed the plastic washer in, then slid the line into the nut. When all the components are in there I can't get the threads to start. What am I doing wrong?

Ok, just figured it out. I had them in the wrong order. What do you guys prefer for a supply line? The bendable crome, braided, pex? What's the best setup?

I prefer the braided. Should you need to replace the toilet, you can reuse the supply line. Kinking bendable chrome has always been a problem for those who don't have a bender or do it often.
