    The brake lines take some time one those I have done a few total replacement jobs. Pain bending all those 1/4 in lines. They usually rot out at ebcm. Make sure to use the coated they last 20 times longer then reg steel lines.

    spray the brake lines with pb blaster then change the lines, then fluid film the lines after your done. as far as everything else, easy to do just time consuming.
