If you are talking hard brake lines:

 

Cunifer is the optimum solution. Tough, reasonably flexible and does not rust.

Copper in theory can work harden and fracture however countless garages use it because it's easy to bend and flare.

Steel is hard to bend and flare and will rust...

 

If the issue is the flexible ones, loads of replacements are available. Even premium brands are not expensive.

No need to remove the tank, they run up the left of it and have a joiner roughly underneath the rear seat. If you're just doing the rear sections check the condition of them under the front left arch liner as they can be a little rough there.

 

They use DIN mushroom flares, you would probably get it to seal using an SAE bubble flare but I wanted mine to be 100% given that it's the brake lines.

Thanks. Rear pipes are worse especially the area behind the wheel arch, as you mentioned. Thinking probably best to renew everything as car is on original pipes and coming up to 17 years old. Never done this before and find it a bit daunting,  so thinking I might get it done for me.
