All depends on how confident you are taking the ability to stop into your own hands. After getting the lines on, you'll need to bleed the system, test for leaks and then redo the lines if necessary.

Personally..it'* too cold right now for many to go outside and do it themselves.

I'm glad you found a reasonable place to do your brakes...good for you! Brakes are not a system you want to "try your hand at" unless you really know what you're doing. Improper flares, kinked bends, improper bleeding can all add up to disaster. Brakes are serious business. I'm not discouraging you from learning, but in the case of brakes it'* best to learn with someone who'* experienced in braking systems.

I poped the hood and checked the master cyclinder and it was DRY. ohh and btw i had the brake light flashing on my dash i guess because the computer saw the MC was empty. so now i am stuck out by my school i called a friend and and the only thing he had was dot 3 ford brake fluid so i say the H*** with it its going in so i put it in pump the brake and they are KINDA back not fully tho. I looked for leaks under the car did not see any puddles or fluid sparying out as i hit the brakes so i dont know whats going on and the fulid in the MC is still in there has not leaked out so what the H*** happend and how can i track down the prob thanks!
If it'* a line, wouldn't the other half of the master cylinder and the two wheels still have had brakes? The leaking line wouldn't let all the fluid drain out of the master cylinder.
No. It'* all about pressure. If you lose pressure somewhere, there'* no pressure anywhere. Look at the MC. There'* 2 lines, usually, then it branches from there. Any loss of pressure anywhere in the system will usually compromise the whole system.
