I just replaced a section of brake line at the passneger side rear wheel. Did this last weekend. I didn't do any proportioning valves.
For the line you'll need:
section of double-flared 3/16" brake line with fittings attached $5-6
3/16" flare unions ($5 for 2)
bending tool ($10)
tubing cutter (a must) ($6)
double flaring tool (another must...I had to buy after a LOT of searching...possible to rent) ($25-55)
With some practice it was not too hard to make a decent double flare. It was harder to do it on the line that was still on the car. I haven't had any leaks though.
If you need any more specifics I can help, as can many others who have done this.
