Default Need Brake lines etc.

Well, we blew a brake line Saturday so I am planning to replace them all, steel lines and the hoses. Is there a good/quality source for these. I get a lot of parts at Mac's but a lot of times they do not have the parts in stock. I am also considering a new master cylinder.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Most of the T-Bird suppliers have brake lines that fit exactly in regular steel and stainless steel. Stainless is twice as much, but you never need to replace it.

Mine are all new too. Not stainless, but quality.
The 1st set lasted 44 yrs.
I've already promised this car to my 4 yr old. He'll be 3rd generation orig owner. Prob have 1/2 a million miles on it by then.
