Having worked on Military Aircraft for 16 years, We only change out Steel braided lines when they fail (unless the line is made of synthetic materials, then there is a forced removal date). I have been running them on my cars for more than 7 years without a failure and I run it in all kinds of whether.
There is also several companies who manufacture braided line, Earls, Russel, Areoquip are just a couple.
All you need to cut the line is some duct tape (to wrap the line where you cut it to keep it from fraying) and a fine tooth hachsaw. Then slip the fittings on and screw them together. Afterwards clean it out with some mild cleaner.
