Default Brake pipe "How to"?

Is there a "how to" to replace the front brake pipes?

I looked but couldn't see one

Hard lines, or the flexi to the calliper?

The hard ones ... not the flexi
I'd be a lot happier if it was the flexi ones!

Depending on how old they are be prepared to replace the flexi's too.

I did mine today and found that due to the "gunk" under the spring clip the flexi had rotted through the thread part

I'm thinking of just doing the lower part as the corrosion is just before the union that connects to the flexi pipe. At least that would save having to bend the pipe to the brake cylinder. The flexi pipe seems to be in good shape, but I guess I'll only know once I remove it.
