Unhappy Busted Brake line

I am having a problem with a busted brake line somewhere in the middle of my 1991 Ford Ranger Supercab with the 4.0L V6 engine. I believe it is one of the metal brake lines, but I am not sure. The area where it is leaking is right between the fuel tank and the frame rail so it is not visible. It has been sitting for about two years and it probably rusted out and busted when I started driving the truck again. I was wondering if anyone knew about how much it would cost to fix that problem.

If you have teh correct flare tool, you can either patch it with a short section for under $10. Or you can go to Ford or possible auto-parts store and buy a whole new line pre-bent and everything for probably around $20.

being as it "busted" from rust, I would replace the entire section from above the rear axle to the master. Only piecing it together will just be putting a band-aid on a bad situation

A work, we would only charge a roll of brake line (36 bucks ni-cop) and about 1-2 hours plus a bleed.
