Well the truth of the matter is nowhere. But really the thing todo would be to buy a roll of the proper diameter line, flaring tool, and maybe the line ends if you cant salvage yours and have at it. If they leak, cut off end with a tubing cutter and do it again. Its not hard. Practice makes perfect.

I found the CuNi to be nicer to work with and they won`t rust.

I redid my brake system with CuNi bulk line. Got it off Amazon with an assortment of fittings. I did need one line that was larger from the master cylinder to the first division block that I used a steel line from NAPA for. Cut that one to length and bent it to fit. The CuNi line is a dream to work with and flares nicely.
