    you need the e-brake cables from civic ex. you can keep your master cylinder but the brakes will feel a little spongey. junk yard? craigslist?

    brake lines you can custom bend and do yourself. Go to advance, napa, pep boys, autozone, or any other place and ask them about bending brake lines. They should direct you to 3 different tools, a little line cutter, a line bender, and the important one, the tool that makes flares at the end of the line. then all you do is buy the line, some conpression couplings or fittings to fit on your junctions. and you should be good.

    good luck.
