With the proper tools you can just replace the section that is needed.

You could use a flair tool or use compression fittings. This web page is for VW's but the information will help you with your car --- http://volksweb.relitech.com/brakeln.htm

I would use a compression fitting with the metal beads that don't require O rings. Anything wrong with that?

A tubing cutter is much better than a hack saw.
