relax...take a deep breath....then cut them and make new lines. The later 73+ A body disk brakes will bolt right on as long as you use: UCAs, spindles, carriers, calipers, master cylinder and prop. valve. deep six the 4 wheel drums and single res. master. see the tech pages for swap info. Its not really a difficult task. good luck.

The most affordable option is to buy a roll of brake line. I think its sold in 25' rolls. Maybe 20' but its a good size roll. Buy a handful of fittings that you will need to connect to the hoses and then get a decent dual flare tool. Sears sells one that will work and the price is decent. You also need to get a tube cutter and a bender that is the correct size. I would also pick up one of those pieces of brake line that has the ends on it already. Maybe a 2' section or such. Cut the end off the 2' section, recycle the two fittings from it to use with your system and then parctice practice practice on that 2' section until you are comfortible with making the ends; make an end, cut it off, continue. Then you can start laying out the new lines for your system from the roll and replace the cut ones. On some of the old cut lines you may be able to put a new line on it and use a coupler to mate the old lines to some new lines to replace the cut sections. This will likely require you make ends on your back under the car and you may not be comfortable with this. I would guess you are doing this on a complete car? You may want to layout the lines using a clothes hanger or other stiff wire to get a pattern.

All the steel lines are cut or the hoses? If the steel lines are cut, you might as wel start over and go with a leter dual master and add the disc brakes while you're at it.
no, just the rubber hoses.
